Angry reaction from protesters as Mubarak fails to go

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak has said he will stay in office and transfer all power only after September's presidential election.

His comments in a national TV address confounded earlier reports that he was preparing to stand down immediately.

Thousands of anti-government protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square reacted angrily to his announcement.

Lina Wardani from Al Ahram newspaper spoke to the BBC's Lyse Doucet.
