Sharaf discusses latest crisis with military council

Ahram Online, Monday 21 Nov 2011

Prime Minister Essam Sharaf is now in a meeting with the military council to discuss the latest crisis.

Sharaf met for four hours on Monday with the ministers of interior, justice, tourism and information to discuss how to contain the three day clashes between protesters and security forces. For the first time since he was charged by the Military Council to form the government, Sharaf has faced the resignation of one of his minister, Culture Minister Emad Abou Ghazi, who resigned in protest at the brutal clampdown of peaceful protesters, which has left over 20 people dead and hundreds of injured.

The clashes began on Saturday when security forces tried to forcibly empty the square from protesters.
