Egypt's Cabinet Resigns

22 Protesters Have Died in the Recent Protests

Egypt's military rulers have accepted the resignation of members of Egypt's Cabinet, a military spokesman says.

"I resigned because of the events in Tahrir (Square), because of the political responsibility," Justice Minister Mohamed Abdelaziz al-Juindy said, referring to the bloody confrontations in Cairo between security forces and demonstrators.

Tahrir Square -- the hub of the activist movement that led to the ouster of longtime President Hosni Mubarak 10 months ago -- was packed Monday with protesters calling for Egypt's military leaders to step down.

Twenty-two protesters have died in recent clashes, and 1,700 have been wounded, a spokesman for the Ministry of Health said.
