Demonstrators demanding that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak vacate his office pause for Friday afternoon prayers in front of the White House prior to a planned march to Capitol Hill in Washington DC on Friday, February 4, 2011. Mubarak has been head of government in Egypt for 30 years. In recent days, thousands of Egyptians have poured into the streets of several cities to call for a change in government. Daily prayer is one of the five pillars of Islam and Friday's afternoon prayer has special significance because it is the week's lone communal prayer.
