Egypt: Division Among the Streets of Alexandria

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(ALEXANDRIA, Egypt) -- People in Egypt, who seemed so united when demonstrations began two weeks ago, are beginning to fracture, with many calling for an end to the protests.

In Alexandria, some say they're sick of the protests and want to get back to work.

Aly, a mechanical engineer, told ABC News, "Enough is enough.  They've accomplished what they intended."

Yet others in the same city feel the opposite, and say that if demonstrations cease now, any and all progress made will be wiped out.

Protesters told ABC News if they stop now then all that they've gained will be lost, and the government will backtrack on its promises.
