Egypt's military is building a wall to block an entrance to Tahrir Square amidst violence

Ahram Online, Saturday 17 Dec 2011

The Egyptian military is building another wall, this time on Qasr El-Ainy Street to block a different entrance to Tahrir Square following deadly clashes

The military is building a concrete-block wall to close off the Qasr El-Ainy Street entrance to Tahrir Square.

Clashes between the military and protesters have been ongoing for two days, ever since the military police violently evacuated the Cabinet sit-in. The attack left nine dead and over 344 injured. 

This is the second wall to be built following violent clashes in the area. The last wall was also built to block an entrance to Tahrir Square, from Mohamed Mahmoud Street, where the military also attacked and clashed with protesters, killing 40 and injuring over a thousand in November.
