Protests in Egypt - as it happened..video

1.53am:CloseLink to this update: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/2011/jan/26/egypt-protests#block-63 It's approaching 4am in Suez and becoming increasingly difficult to ascertain exactly what is going on in the city. Some reports are suggesting the military has a presence in the city, but others deny it.

Fires have reportedly been started at the Police Headquarters in the city earlier I posted a video purporting to show the blaze being put out and at a chemical factory, and there are reports of restrictions to telephone and internet services, although some networks, including Vodafone, appear to now be working.

We're unable to confirm some of the reports coming from Suez, and it looks as if it will take daylight to reveal what is actually happening in the city. This blog is closing now, but we'll have more on tonight's events tomorrow morning check back for updates.

Hope all in Egypt are safe and well.
