The Egypt government’s TV is saying that protesters at Tahrir square are given 200 euros a day, and a KFC lunch-box. But photographer Rania Helmy found where the chicken is really going to
Vicepresident Omar Suleyman threatened the opposition parties with a coup d’Etat if the protests continue. Tomorrow, Friday, a massive demonstration to honour those who died is planned. The rumour goes that the army could attack Tahrir square tonight. World, keep an eye!
Wael Ghonim on Tweeter 18 hours ago: “We are hoping that the “Friday of Martyrs” will be the world largest funeral to bid farewell to 300 Egyptians #Jan25″
URGENT!!! There are strong signals that Mubarak will step down this evening (it’s 18.00 here in Cairo now). Top army officers asked to wait one hour for a statement they want to make. People in Tahrir square were fearing an army attack four hours ago, but now they can’t hold their breath waiting for the departure. I’m going to Tahrir now
The Egyptians know their president better, of course. They cautiously resisted to believe Mubarak was to resign. When he spoke like a father to his children and insisted to continue, the crowd in Tahrir yelled: “If you don’t go, we don’t go!” and “Leave, Mubarak!” They are having midnight meetings and a lot of chanting, with great spirit. Tomorrow, huge demonstration
Look at this photo… Tahrir square tonight. It’s never been this full at this time. The revolution is growing in numbers and determination. Tomorrow’s demos and concentration will be historical. I only hope the army won’t attack
