March of the Million in Cairo Tuesday

Hundreds of thousands are expected to go to Cairo's Tahrir Square on Tuesday for a demonstration under the slogan "A million marchers demand justice and the death penalty for murderers."

It was reported Monday that in two months the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of prosecutors demanding death penalty for former president Hosni Mubarak and former interior minister Habib Al-Adli in the death of anti-government protesters before Mubarak stepped down, as well as a counter-appeal filed by Mubarak's lawyer on the life sentence imposed on him.
