With a new wave of demonstrations in Tahrir Square on Tuesday — by some measures the largest in the two-week uprising — Egyptians loudly rejected their government’s approach to political change and renewed their demands for the immediate resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.

The crowds swelled despite an appearance on state television by Vice President Omar Suleiman, a former intelligence chief who has met opposition groups including the banned Muslim Brotherhood, and who said Tuesday that Mr. Mubarak had endorsed moves to create a timetable for a “peaceful and organized transfer of power.”
