Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said he would like to leave office but was afraid that chaos would spread across Egypt after that, the ABC TV reported Thursday.

During the interview, Mubarak said he did not want to see Egyptians fighting themselves, blaming the violence on the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

Mubarak said he never intends to seek another presidential term, said the report.

Egypt's Vice President Omar Suleiman said earlier Thursday that Mubarak's son will not run for the presidency either.

The massive anti-regime protests in Egypt have left more than 100 dead and several thousand people injured, with a great impact on the normal life of citizens.

Late Wednesday, anti-government protesters and supporters of Mubarak clashed in downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square, leaving eight dead and over 800 injured.
