Three days after President Hosni Mubarak's resignation, Egypt's generals are attempting to get the country back to work. They're calling for Tahrir Square to be cleared, and say strike action will be banned.

On Sunday, the higher military council suspended the constitution and dissolved parliament. It says it will remain in power for six months, or until "free and fair" elections are held under a revised constitution.

The cabinet appointed by former president, Hosni Mubarak, is to stay in office, but all legislation will be submitted to army chiefs for approval.

Many people in Egypt are seeking to continue the momentum of the protests, to gain better pay and working conditions.
