More Protests in Egypt

Another exhausting day in Egypt, protests continue but with smaller numbers than yesterday and more brutality from the riot police forces. Two more people were killed today making a total of 7 deaths in the last 2 days with hundreds of injuries and the total number of detainees is now about 1200.

Many journalists and cameramen have been also detained during the clashes. Internet censorship over twitter, facebook and other websites continued in an intermittent way though most activists were able to bypass this censorship by using special software or proxies. The Mediterranean city of Suez have seen the most violent clashes between protesters and the police after 2 protesters were shot and died yesterday and police forces were heftily beating the people and throwing tear gas at them.
