World Watch: Egypt’s continued call for democracy

* Egypt: Thousands of protesters jammed into Cairo’s Tahrir Square today and continued to urge the military-led government to accelerate a transition to civilian rule.

* U.S.: Rather than focus on the consumerism and sporadic scuffles on Black Friday why not celebrate Evacuation Day instead?

* South Korea: In what sounds like the premise behind an episode of “The Twilight Zone” robotic prison guards may be used to monitor inmates at a South Korean prison.

* Africa: Ethiopia could be the latest African country to send troops to Somalia in order to combat insurgents reportedly linked to Al-Qaeda.
