Chronicle and videos from Tahir sq, Cairo #acampadabcn #ows #15M #acampadasol

In Egypt, we are facing yet another January 28, now with both police and army attacking. Protests have been violently attacked in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez. Tahrir square is under continuous attack since early Saturday with gas bombs, rubber bullets and live ammunition. The attacks is still ongoing until now. JUST NOW, Military intervened and attacked the field hospital. They now have started burning down the square and chasing protesters away.

Since early Saturday, we have at least five documented extrajudicial killings in Cairo and Alex and thousands others injured.These numbers are in addition to at least 4 other killings, that we just nownreceived confirmation from a co-worker inside the square that their bodies are being collected in front of KFC. The killings are increasing by the MINUTE–It appears that they want to wipe out all protesters – it is a full fledged massacre. Additionally, security forces are not only engaging in burning down public properties as they chase away protesters, they are also looting and damaging properties on purpose, something which is believed to be used against protesters later when they are arrested.

There are reports of various arrests by Mil police and quite possibly civilian police as well. The numbers are estimated to be very high, and amongst those arrested is potential presidential candidate and journalist Bosayna Kamel. There are reports that she was later released. Additionally, there are various reports of arresting the injured from public hospitals. These are in addition to protesters who were arrested yesterday already and appeared today before Abdeen Prosecution (civilian prosecution).
There are reports that they will cut down internet and communication again, but we can not verify this.

In this context, it is important to mention that such violence is again used against pro democracy and human rights protesters, who are taking to the streets demanding the same exact demands. The majority of protesters do not belong to any political parties or affiliations and there is very limited.

1. Ahmed Mahmoud Ahmed
