    Egyptian protesters say army guarantees fall short

    CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt’s powerful army gave guarantees on Friday that President Hosni Mubarak’s promised reforms would be carried out, but protesters insisted he quit now and cranked up the pressure by massing outside his palace.

    The assurances were seen as an army push to defuse a popular uprising unprecedented in modern Egypt and a signal it wanted demonstrators off the streets after 18 days of turmoil that has disrupted the economy and unnerved the Middle East.

    “This is not our demand,” one protester said, after relaying the contents of the army statement to the Tahrir (Liberation) Square protest. “We have one demand, that Mubarak step down.”

    Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the presidential palace, demanding Mubarak resign immediately, and the army did not try to remove them, a Reuters witness said. Razor wire and six tanks and armored vehicles separated them from the palace.
