    As we were trying to film on the bridge into Tahrir Square an angry mob of pro-Mubarak protesters surrounded us and chased us into the car, shouting that they hated us and America.We jumped into our car but some of the protesters kicked in the car doors and broke our windshield as we drove away.

    "The Egyptian street just before the riots !"

    "Those Egyptian cops don't look very happy !

    The worst clashes since Friday erupted today in Cairo with pro- and anti-Mubarak mobs facing off in Liberation Square. Shots have been fired and there have been reports of injuries.

    Tensions erupted on a day that had begun with some improvements, such as the Internet being restored and curfew hours being shortened.

    Earlier in the day, before the clashes, we had gone over to interview Amr Moussa, the longtime President of the Arab League. But when we left the Arab League headquarters, we discovered many of the pro- Mubarak demonstrators had taken to the streets. A band of thugs were gathering around the Arab League headquarters.
    One of the women who works there later told us that as she approached the building with a camera in her hand, the crowd pulled her by her scarf, trying to pull her to the ground.

    Those opposed to change have clearly turned against the media. Yesterday two of our colleagues were arrested and roughed up by a plainclothes policeman, who tried to seize their camera.

    Virginia, birthplace of Presidents, mostly good ones.
    I don't think realistically these people are pro-mubarak...they are anti sharia. The others rioting FOR mubarak to leave are radical sharia loving muslims. This is so reminiscent of the things in Honduras earlier last year. Remember?

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    Maybe the US journalists and correspondents should remind the cave dwellers about their First Amendment rights and freedom of the press.:D
