The leadership of Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party has resigned, according to news reports.
Gamal Mubarak, the son of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, was among those who resigned, according to Egypt's State TV as cited by Reuters and others.
Some reports suggest that the move was intended to show anti-government protesters that President Mubarak is committed to reform. Protests over his nearly three-decade reign have entered their 12th day.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post referred to various reports, which have since been revised, that President Mubarak had resigned as head of the NDP.
