I’m sure everybody has been following the events in Egypt, which yesterday took a very violent turn, when the regime, copying the tactics so successfully used in Iran recently, sent in a violent mob to attack those protesting against the corrupt, authoritarian regime. One of the best sites to get information about what’s happening (plus a lot of background) is Juan Cole’s Informed Comment. You’ve probably also heard of and/or seen the attacks of said mob on Western journalists (check out Nicholas Kristof’s brief report). Here is what happened to photographer Andrew Burton (via).
