Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) on Sunday extended its curfew in Cairo’s flashpoint Abbasiya district from 11pm Sunday night to 6am Monday morning.

The curfew was first imposed on Friday, following the eruption of clashes between anti-SCAF protesters and army personnel outside defence ministry headquarters in Abbasiya. Two people were killed and hundreds injured in the ensuing bloodshed.  

Since the onset of violence on 28 April, at least ten protesters have been killed and hundreds more injured.

On Friday, more than 300 protesters were arrested in a crackdown by military personnel. Although 15 female protesters were later released, the rest remained in detention as of Sunday night.

Save Egypt!!
I am afraid Timothy is right!! We have seen nothing yet! The salefests will use violence and intimidation unless they get their own way which is turning the country into an Islamic State. That is why the army should remain as the guardian of the constitution as the case in Turkey

Egypt
Something seems to have gone very wrong in the Egypt revolution and things are worse now than they were under Mubarak. The Military is only making things worse by the day.
