Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his family have arrived in the resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh in the Sinai Peninsula, Al Arabiya television and the Associated Press reported today, without saying where they got the information.

Mubarak left Cairo from a military airbase in the suburbs and was accompanied by Lieutenant General Sami Hafez Enan, chief of staff of the Egyptian Army, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported, citing an unidentified airport official.

Egyptians today vowed to hold their biggest demonstrations so far during the crisis over the country’s leadership after Mubarak went on national television to defy calls for his immediate resignation. Mubarak, 82, reiterated his intention to stay in office, while handing day-to-day powers to Vice President Omar Suleiman in a bid to placate opponents who demand an end to his 30-year rule.
