Egypt’s army to replace Mubarak-era governors

Egypt’s interim military government has said on Sunday it will remove some provincial governors appointed by former President Hosni Mubarak, the BBc informs. The move is an apparent concession to protesters who want Mubarak and his allies tried for corruption. It follows an army move on protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Saturday in which at least one person was killed. The military has said it will use force to clear the square “to ensure life goes back to normal” in Egypt.
