Egyptian justice minister accuses some elements of destabilization country

Egyptian Minister of Justice Muhammad Al Jundi said he had got a report which confirms involvement of some neighboring countries in financing human rights associations and civil society organizations in Egypt, Al Ahram newspaper reported.

"Some foreign and internal elements are involved in what is happening in Egypt," he said "this is aimed at destroying the state structure and destabilizing public order in the country."

He noted the report confirms existence of revolution against 25 January revolution.

Large-scale anti-governmental protests were held in Egypt. Thousands of people in different cities across the country went to the streets, demanding President Hosni Mubarak's resignation and the dissolution of parliament. The unrests in the country have killed at least 850 people and injuring over 4,000. A one million march passed at Tahrir Square in Cairo to demand the resignation of President Mubarak. As a result, Mubarak announced about his resignation. The leadership passed to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.

The unrest began after Friday prayers, when thousands converged on Cairo's Tahrir Square to demand faster political reforms following the ousting of Mr Mubarak in February.

From there, hundreds marched on the Israeli embassy. They smashed through a security wall around the building before a group of about 30 broke in and threw documents out of windows.
