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 youth group then went on to help Ukraine and Georgia shake off their dictatorships. 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.
