CAIRO Feb 11 (Reuters) - A small group of Egyptians called for President Hosni Mubarak's downfall outside his palace in Cairo on Friday and the army did not try to remove them, a Reuters witness said.

"Down, down Hosni Mubarak," chanted the protesters, who numbered a few dozen. A sign delivering the same message had been attached to barbed wire that was blocking one of the entrances to the palace. (Reporting by Marwa Awad; Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Alison Williams)
