Egypt's Suleiman conditions talks with end to protests

Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman urged on Wednesday all demonstrators to go home and observe a curfew to restore calm, saying his dialogue with political forces depended on an end to street protests.

"The participants in these demonstrations had conveyed their message, both those demanding reform and those who came out in support of President Hosni Mubarak,"the MENA state agency said.

He urged "all citizens to return to their homes and abide by the curfew to boost the authorities' efforts in restoring calm and stability and limit the damage and losses the demonstrations had caused Egypt since they erupted last week."

But opposition leaders insisted there can be no negotiations until Mubarak steps down.
