Police and garbage collectors are appearing on the streets of Cairo and subway stations are reopening after soldiers and neighbourhood watch groups armed with clubs and machetes kept the peace in many districts overnight.

A leading Muslim Brotherhood official tells The Associated Press the fundamentalist movement wants to form a committee of opposition groups along with Nobel laureate and leading reform advocate Mohammad ElBaradei as a way of uniting the disparate groups calling for the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.

Saad el-Katatni said on Monday morning that his group has not picked Mr. ElBaradei to represent it. The outlawed Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt’s largest opposition movement, and wants to form an Islamist state in the most populous Arab nation.
