The peace on the square lastet two weeks – now its seems it is over and it’s happening what so many ppl on the square feared for days. Yesterday, Friday, protesters in Alexandria and Suez were attacked by the armed forces. In Cairo a solidarity march left Tahrir Square in the late evening, several thousands marched to the headquarter of the military council (SCAF) .

The army blocked the way with tanks and armed vehicals and shot in the air to disperse protesters – the shots can be heard on thisvideo.
