Egyptian Military Brutalizes Protesters

The struggle for democracy continues in Egypt. The below footage shows the military ganging up on a single protester and beating the prone protester into bloody submission. Not for the faint of heart.

According Reuters, 10 people are dead in clashes in Cairo:

Soldiers beat demonstrators with batons in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Saturday in a second day of clashes that have killed 10 people and wounded hundreds, marring the first free election most Egyptians can remember.

Protesters fled into side streets to escape the troops in riot gear, who grabbed people and battered them repeatedly even after they had been beaten to the ground, a Reuters journalist said. Shots were fired in the air.

Soldiers pulled down protester tents and set them on fire, local television footage showed.

Here is to hoping that the Egyptian people will succeed in the end.
