A television cameraman and colleagues standing on the awning of a shop transmit footage by satellite-phone of the continuing protest in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo, Egypt Monday, Feb. 7, 2011. Egypt's embattled regime announced Monday a 15 percent raise for government employees in an attempt to shore up its base and defuse popular anger but the gestures so far have done little to persuade the tens of thousands of protesters occupying Tahrir Square to end their two-week long protest, leaving the two sides in an uneasy stalemate. Name of shop on sign in arabic reads "Tahrir Star Leather". (AP Photo/Ben Curtis
