Egypt's parliament speaker says President Hosni Mubarak remains in control of the country despite chaos engulfing the capital and other cities.
Speaker Fathy Surour says: "Matters are in the safe hands of Hosni Mubarak and he will act and you will see these actions."
Protesters have seized the streets of Cairo, battling police with stones and firebombs, burning down the ruling party headquarters, and defying a night curfew enforced by a military deployment. It was the peak of unrest posing the most dire threat to Mubarak in his three decades of authoritarian rule.
