There have been protests outside the Egyptian embassy in London by supporters of the controversial Islamic group Hizb-ut-Tahrir, calling for President Mubarak to resign.

Crowds sported banners calling for 'khilafah' - the Islamic way of life as well as "Arab puppet rulers must go" and "Arab-Muslim rulers are traitors."

Led by a number of speakers, dozens of men, women and children chanted "go, Mubarak, go"

Police monitored the protest after a confrontation with another group protested outside the embassy, also in support of the people of Egypt. Organisers of this protest said that they had a permit and did not want to be connected to Hizb-ut-Tahrir.

Rafik Bedair, 36, a doctor from Manchester, said: "Our point is to show some solidarity with the people demonstrating in Egypt.

"We are calling for Mubarak to go for people to get their freedom."
