(CAIRO) -- Anti-government protesters in Egypt headed towards parliament Wednesday for a second straight day, demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.
Hundreds of protesters left Cairo's Tahrir Square and marched to parliament again in an effort to escalate pressure on the government to concede to their demands. Demonstrators want Mubarak, along with his entire government, to step down.
As demonstrations continue for a 16th day, Vice President Omar Suleiman is calling for an end to the protests.
According to the state-run news agency Mena, Suleiman said, "We can't bear this for a long time, and there must be an end to this crisis as soon as possible," while speaking with newspaper editors on Tuesday.
