Mr ElBaradei was among thousands of protesters who have poured on to the streets of Egypt's towns and cities at the end of noon prayers on Friday, in are expected to be the biggest demonstrations yet in the attempted revolution against Mr Mubarak

Egypt's authorities responded to the growing threat to the regime by shutting down access to the internet and launching a fresh wave of arrests.Their focus this time was the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group, after it threw its support behind the protest movement. Leaders of the group, as well as ordinary supporters, were rounded up on Thursday night and in the early hours of Friday morning.

But, despite a ban on all forms of political protest, there was little to suggest that the crackdown was working.
