The state news agency MENA reported that the protester's demands included a faster trial for ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
According to the report, the protesters gathered at Tahrir Square, the centre of revolt against Hosni Mubarak, and shouted slogans calling for Mubarak and several others to be tried for graft. They also demanded the release of political prisoners.
Apart from this there were two other protests in Cairo, the Egyptian capital. In one, nearly a thousand Coptic Christians sought the immediate release of protesters detained in earlier demonstrations and also asked for faster probe into incidents of sectarian strife that occurred in recent times.
In the second protest, around 500 or more people converged in front of Egypt's national television and radio premises and asked for the employees hired under Mubarak's regime to quit. They alleged that the employees indulged in "incorrect and misleading" coverage of anti-Mubarak protests.
