Hundreds of judges joined the mass anti-government protests in Egypt's capital Cairo, which continued into its sixth day on Sunday, Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported.

Despite a government reshuffle, thousands of people, shouting slogans and waving national flag, flooded the Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo, which was guarded by armored cars, tanks and full-armed soldiers.

Witnesses said there are more military presence than during the previous days and fighter jets fly low over the capital, Al Jazeera said.

Tens of thousands of outraged people, inspired by the popular protests in Tunisia, took to streets in Egypt in the past few days, asking the president and the government to step down.

It has been the largest demonstration since President Hosni Mubarak was sworn in 1981.
