BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) - Former revolutionaries who helped topple Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic are praising the largely peaceful anti-government protests in Egypt. A former leader of Otpor, or the Resistance movement, Srdja Popovic said Tuesday the protests in Egypt are similar to the ones in Serbia in 2000. Popovic: "On one side, we have an undemocratic regime, and on the other we have strong and liberal youth." Otpor was the force behind Milosevic's downfall.

The now-disbanded movement's flag featuring a clenched white fist on a black background could also be seen carried by protesters on Cairo streets.
