Protesters demanding President Hosni Mubarak's ouster packed Cairo's Tahrir Square by the tens of thousands Friday, waving Egyptian flags, singing the national anthem and cheering, appearing undaunted and determined after their camp withstood two days of street battles with regime supporters trying to dislodge them. Thousands including families with children flowed over bridges across the Nile into "Liberation" Square, a sign that they were not intimidated after the protesters fended off everything thrown at them by pro-Mubarak attackers; storms of hurled concrete, metal rebar and firebombs, fighters on horses and camels and automatic gunfire barrages. The protesters passed through a series of beefed-up checkpoints by the military and the protesters themselves guarding the square.
