CAIRO (AP) - Protesters in Cairo's central square are hailing a young marketing manager for Google credited with inspiring Egypt's uprising against President Hosni Mubarak (HOHS'-nee moo-BAH'-rahk).
Wael Ghonim (wah'EHL' groh-NAYM') was detained shortly after the protests began two weeks ago. He joined the massive crowd in Tahrir Square for the first time today, declaring that protesters would not drop their demands for Mubarak to leave.
Meanwhile, President Hosni Mubarak (HOHS'-nee moo-BAH'-rahk) has set up a committee to discuss and recommend constitutional changes that would impose term limits and relax eligibility rules for who can run for president.
The moves are the first concrete steps taken by the longtime authoritarian ruler to implement reforms promised during two weeks of mass protests. So far government concessions have fallen short of the demands of protester demands that Mubarak immediately step down.
