Hezbollah hails Egypt demonstrators

Hezbollah movement hailed Tuesday the Egyptian protesters who are calling for the ouster of President Hosny Mubarak.

"We salute the proud Egyptian people for their struggle ... and their rejection of normalizing (relations) with Israel as well as their aspiration to freedom, independence and dignity," Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naeem said in statement.

Hezbollah, a strong critic of the Egyptian regime, has accused Cairo of coordinating with Israel during the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip in 2008.
