#Tahrir : Camel Battle No.2 "Live blogging"

I think you probably have known what is taking or has taken place at Tahrir square better than me as I have been sick all day long and when I woke up ,I found out another camel battle at Tahrir square. In brief CSF tried to dispersed the sit in of yesterday by forces but failed then returned back by full force to disperse the sit in with tear gases grenades , rubber bullets and gunshots.
Now not less than 600 are injured according to the ministry of health. There are field hospitals at Tahrir square especially the old field hospital behind KFC and they need medical supplies.
There are not less tens of thousands at the Tahrir square with the intention of a sit in.
Blogger and activist Malek Mustafa was injured in his right way , he was shot in his right eye and currently is having a surgery. Hopefully insh Allah he will not lose his eye. Malek married blogger and activist Fatma Abed from couple of months ago and that amazing young lady was adopting the revolution’s injured cause. Please pray for them.

There are unconfirmed news that ElBaradei is heading to Tahrir square and that he will form a national unity cabinet.
Potential Presidential candidate Ayman Nour is heading as well to the square. Amr Hamzawy has halted his parliamentary campaign temporarily
It is unclear if the Muslim brotherhood will participate in the protests or not as its leaders saying that they are against the protests but the youth of the MB are there. The general guide of MB asked on twitter all Egyptians to restrain themselves and not to defame the revolution.
There are protests in solidarity since the noon in Suez , Port Said. Alexandria , Sohag , Qena and Tanta.
The rumors mill is moving so fast in Egypt. We do not know if the parliamentary elections to be held.
Siyad Sidhom , the minister of interior’s aide is speaking on TV and claims that the CSF did not have a single bullet whether rubber bullet or gunshots. Ok what are these ? All these images were taken today from Tahrir square.
