Egypt crisis: More danger for protesters?

[Update 11:33 a.m. Cairo, 4:33 a.m. ET] As protests in Egypt entered a third week Tuesday, the scene in Cairo's Tahrir Square might appear relatively calm. Cameras no longer captured images of Molotov cocktails and chunks of concrete flying through the air. But some say more danger could come.

[Update 8:53 p.m. Cairo, 1:53 p.m. ET] Google executive Wael Ghonim has been released in Egypt, the company announced. "Huge relief - Wael Ghonim has been released. Our love to him and his family," the company tweeted shortly after 8 p.m. in Cairo (1 p.m. ET). Ghonim's Twitter account, which had not had a posting since he went missing January 28, carried a tweet around the same time. "Freedom is a bless (sic) that deserves fighting for it," the tweet said, ending with the hashtag ".Jan25," a reference to the Egypt protests.

    I applaude the courage of the Egyptian People. The winning side must be the people of Egypt. Mr. M must go, if he hadnt reformed the country in 30 years to the betterment of people, then he will not do it in 6 months. Mr. M billion needs an audit, assets frozen, and corruption charges brought to his door. Be careful who you choose to succeed Mr. M Egypt. GO, Egypt, Go> Dont stop now. The time is now. The momentum is there. You can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. Egyptions have lost their lives, sont make it in vain.

    I think obama's done an awesome job. He's supported freedom without paying thousands of American lives. He talks to who they give him to talk to. If anything, i think egypt will be a cooler place to go in another year. Might be able to put the pyramids on my bucket list after all.

      Your spirit could be infectious. I hope your optimism is contagious and opens the door to the Egyptions to want us there...

      Hope is a bigger word than Fear. Hope is what the Egyptian people are feeling now. Could they have done it without hope. It is universal. Like a religion.
