For three days on the row, the interior ministry’s Central Security Forces have been waging a war similar to what the Israelis are doing in Palestine, firing tear gas, rubber bullets and bird shots at unarmed protesters.
The latest victim is our Salma Said, a leftist blogger and one of the bravest young women in this revolution, and who’s been active for years against the Mubarak’s dictatorship.
Salma received a hail of bird shots from an officer manning an armored vehicle that was terrorizing protesters in Bab el-Louq.
This is the security services trained, sponsored, and supported by the US and the EU.
A handful of protesters held a silent sit-in in front of the Public Prosecutor’s office Thursday, in solidarity with blogger Michael Nabil Sanad, who’s been sentenced by a military tribunal to three years in prison for “defaming the army.” Michael is currently going on a hunger strike against ill treatment. His father (below) has filed a report at the Public Prosecutor against the prison authorities.
