ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION At least one person was reported dead and three injured in Cairo on Saturday (November 26) as violence flared again in the Egyptian capital. Clashes took place as Egyptian security forces attempted to disperse a crowd of protesters camping out near the cabinet office in Qasr al-Ayni, a main street near Cairo's Tahrir square. Thousands stayed in the square late into the night on Friday, to pressure the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to further speed up a transition to democracy, Some protesters organized a sit-in outside Egypt's parliament to object to the country's new prime minister, Kamal al-Ganzouri, who was appointed on Thursday (November 24). The generals have shown no sign of giving way to the protesters demands. Instead, they have promised a new president would be elected by mid-2012, sooner than previously announced, appointing Ganzouri, 78, to head a "national salvation government". The Tahrir protesters have dismissed Ganzouri, premier from 1996 to 1999, as another face from the past whose appointment reflects the generals' resistance to change.
