The Egyptian military council late Monday accepted the resignation of the government, following three days of clashes between protesters and police that left 33 people dead, dpa quoted Arab Media as reporting.
Earlier on Monday the Egyptian government has put "its resignation in the hands of the military council."
At least 33 were dead after three days of clashes between police and protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square, amid calls by 38 opposition groups called for a million man march on Tuesday to pressure Egypt's military rulers to step aside.
The Dubai-based Al Arabiya television quoted sources at Cairo's main morgue saying 33 corpses had been received there since Saturday, most of them with bullet wounds.
Since Saturday, government forces used tear gas and batons to disperse the demonstrators. Activists say rubber bullets and shotguns were also used.
The scene was reminiscent of the popular revolt in the same place against the regime of former president Hosny Mubarak.
Opposition groups have become more critical of the military rulers, who they accuse of dragging their feet on handing power over to an elected civil administration.
The violence was taking place just a week before Egyptians go to the polls to elect a new parliament. Elections are set to take place between November 28 and January 10.
