Arab Autumn in Egypt?

Protests continue today in Egypt

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has refused to accept the resignation of the acting Egyptian government which had taken this decision due to massive protests that have shaken Tahrir Square once more, among other important plazas all over Egypt. After four days of violent confrontations in which the police has used full force against demonstrators, there are reports of over 30 dead and thousands wounded. Protesters now demand the end of the power that the military has been able to retain after the ousting of Hosni Mubarak in February this year. They claim that nothing has changed and that one of the first so-called 'Arab Spring' revolutions, the Egyptian one, has been undermined by the Armed Forces who are today in total control of Egypt.

Police ready t attack demonstrators

There are reports of one million protesters today at Tahrir Square who intend the change the face of power in Egypt. Of course, there are also huge interests in the region and the US and Israel are following closely what's happening in Cairo, since Egypt represent an important balance in the area.
