From Cairo's Tahrir Square, where three days of clashes between authorities and thousands of protesters have left more than 20 people dead and more than 1,700 injured, NPR's Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson says the Egyptians who have taken to the streets again:

"Want an acknowledgement that what has been happening" — continued repression of speech, jailing of critics and crackdowns on dissent — "is a continuation of [former President Hosni] Mubarak's regime; that, in fact, the revolution is not over."

Neither side appears willing to budge, Soraya adds.
