"Egypt's military ruler has decreed a partial lifting of the nation's hated emergency laws, saying the draconian laws will remain applicable to crimes committed by 'thugs.' Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi said in a televised address to the nation on Tuesday that the emergency laws would be lifted effective Wednesday, the first anniversary of the start of the popular uprising that toppled longtime authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak."
