A fight broke out today between a microbus driver and a police officer, Ashraf el-Saggini, in Maadi’s Algeria Square. The fight was over the right of way. Officer Ashraf pulled his gun and shot dead the driver. The citizens attacked the police van, set it on fire after beating the officer and his soldiers, and handed them over to the army. There are protests taking place as I’m writing now.

There is also a police crackdown on protesters in Wadi el-Gadid, and some of a number of Sinai citizens who’s just been released are now in detention again.

So much for change… Wake up people, the regime is still alive and well.. The revolution must continue…

UPDATE: The driver hasn’t died, as reported by Youm7 and Ahram, but he’s been critically injured.
