Egypt imposes curfew in bid to curb protests

Military sent to quell anti-government demonstrations


 

Tens of thousands of protesters poured out onto Egyptian streets after Friday’s midday prayers, prompting the government to impose a curfew from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. local time. Military vehicles have also been sent down into the streets to quell massive protests demanding an end to the government of President Hosni Mubarak. Meanwhile, reformist leader Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace laureate and the UN’s former chief nuclear watchdog, returned home to Egypt to support the demonstrations, but was placed under house arrest by Egyptian authorities. Authorities have also shut down Internet access, as well as mobile phone and text messaging services throughout the country. Seven people have so far been killed in the demonstrations.

  1. SUPPORT EGYPT PROTESTS
    HELP MOHAMED EL BARADEI

    When the new Egypt is born again and the corrupt government is overthrown, Egypt needs to BAN the UNITED STATES and its allies from using the SUEZ CANAL.

    Wikileaks showed the corruption of the United States behind hurting many governments like Egypt. America supported President Hosni Mubarak and his tyranny. Their corruption helped the abuses in Egypt.

    I ask my fellow Egyptians to ban America and its allies like the Saudi Arabia until they turn against America as well.

    The Suez Canal can help break the evil hold of the United States.

    BOYCOTT THE UNITED STATES NOW!!!!!!
