Egypt magnate-cum-politician quits Mubarak party: report

CAIRO (Reuters) - Wealthy Egyptian business Ahmed Ezz, a close confidante of the president’s son and one of the targets for protester criticism, has resigned from ruling party, state television reported.

Protesters ransacked and burned one of his company’s main offices in Mohandiseen, an area of Cairo. Saturday, some protesters held up posters with a cross marked over the face of Ezz, who is chairman of Ezz Steel.
