A day after huge protests, Egyptian security clamps down

A day after an unparalleled display of public rage at Egypt's government and full-throated cries for the ouster of its longtime president, the country's security forces made their own potent presence felt on
the angry streets.

Police turned water cannons and tear gas on protesters in the early hours of Wednesday morning to try to break up anti-government demonstrations as the Interior Ministry warned it "will not allow any
provocative movement or a protest or rallies or demonstrations."

In the heart of Cairo, where people were being beaten with sticks and fists and demonstrators were being dragged away amid tear gas. Witnesses saw security forces harassing journalists and photographers.

    dear everyone,
    iam egyptian used to live all my life with only one name of a president , having faith that it is gonna be better day after day and the situation is gonna be better ,maybe i don't know a lot about politics because am like most of the peoplke around the world only receiving information from public media and internet but i know that i'v spended 4 years in my country without having a job andi don't have any decent social life and am still supported by my father while am 25 and i have no dignity as a citizen on his own country. thats why i understand why someone could finish his life by burning himself and feeling no sorry for doing that ( that is the only hope) am writting that comment now and i wish that iam not gonna be in trouble or any of my family , because we don't have the right to say anything .support the egyptian revolution you could help 90 milion human to be really human

    Every man or woman deserves the right to pursue their dreams of living a fruitful and peaceful existence. Good people around the world need to stop being so complacent even though it goes against their kind hearted nature. Evil thrives when good people do nothing. I don't ever see people around the world upset because they are lazy whiners, but because they are not even afforded the chance to work hard for themselves and their families. We are all tired of the tricksters and snakes determining our level of existence. Hope all the best for Egypt and every other nation.

    @US Guy...as if people get what they desrve. Over half of the world families starve as they watch their own governments take bribes from other governments and corporations to rob them of their natural resources. The nations that do the bribing and the robbing are the ones that struggle with obesity btw.
