I'm watching twitter, seems the only place minute by minute news is getting out.

Egypt is certainly fighting it's citizens in a fight to the death, one of them has got to die, Egypt, or Egyptians?

I'm hoping that they do topple Mubarrak, and tell Israel and the US to go play in the Negev.

The Telecoms company Vodafone says the Egyptian government has ordered all mobile telephone operators to suspend services "in selected areas" of the country.

In a statement, the company says that "under Egyptian legislation the authorities have the right to issue such an order and we are obliged to comply with it." British-based Vodafone Group plc said Egyptian authorities "will be clarifying the situation in due course."

Don't be such an Anarchist!

Storming the palace will get them nowhere!

All this violence- You really think it'll get them what they want? Let's say they manage to break through or kill all the cops and soldiers, then they reach Mubarak, and what? Kill him?

The fate of this revolution will be decided by the non violent actions that the people of Egypt will take, rather than the violent ones.

2:55 pm - Our Arabic channel is reporting that 40,000 protesters in Mansoura - a mid-sized, working-class town in the Nile Delta - are attacking the offices of the ruling National Democratic Party. That would be an enormous crowd, and we haven't confirmed the number.

Shadi Hamid, of the Brookings Institution, says from the studio here in Doha that no matter where these protests go, the Egyptian people have made a huge accomplishment.

12.59pm: In another extraordinary audio report Jack Shenker in Cairo reports on signs that the police are siding with the protesters.

1.12pm: An eyewitness account from Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch, who says police immediately set upon peaceful protesters.


We are in East Alexandria. Immediately after prayer, the people came out of mosque with banners and started marching, shouting 'we are peaceful, we are peaceful'. Security arrived and immediately began shooting teargas and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, about 600. Then one-hour rock throwing clash, but police didn't advance more than one block and kept being pushed back. Then a massive column of protesters came from the other direction and blocked in police, holding up their hands and shouting we are peaceful. Right now police is held up in the yard of mosque and protesters all around, police can't move. They repeatedly ran out of teargas and begged protesters to stop, protesters telling them to join them


Priceless



1.21pm: Moving pictures of people praying in the streets in Cairo are currently being broadcast.

"Nour", a young activist who was locked in the back of a police van with Jack Shenker, has told al-Jazeera that his Dad, Ayman Nour, a prominent dissident, is in intensive care after being hit on the back of a head by a rock thrown by government thugs. His father has diabetes and a heart condition. His father challenged Hosni Mubarak for the presidency in 2005 and was thrown in jail for his troubles.

Nour said there were government thugs in Cairo with "steel and sticks. It is very frightening and intimidating."




3:18 pm - Senior ruling party member Mustafa al-Fiqi on the phone with Al Jazeera English: President Hosni Mubarak's government should issue a response, this is not a sign of weakness. He is sure Mubarak will "face the people in the the coming days ... otherwise the situation will be escalating and we won't feel the limits to what is going on now."

Oh you tell THAT to the French, British, Russians, Italians ... just about every "civilised" nation out there!! They all stormed the palace was the best damned thing they could have done. All for exactly the same reason mind you.

Difference between a european politician and an african politician?

The european have taken the leaders out and put a bullet in them. Then turned around and asked who is next. The africans have still got to get there.

Non violence my sweet ass. Never worked, never will. About time some african dictator blood got spilled. Really, it's time. Enough of every body else's blood thanks. Watch carefully what the Egyptian authorities are doing to maintain power ... releasing prisoners to attack peaceful protestor? Unleashing plainclothes policemen with knives into the melee?

Fight fire with fire.

3:27 pm - Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal, in Suez, says protesters have taken over the central part of the city, called al-Arbayyin. The momentum seemed to turn in their favor after several fire engines tried to barrel through a crowd, sending people scattering; the crowd subsequently began pelting the trucks with stones."It's getting from bad to worse as far as the security services here are concerned," he tells us.

Protestors are throwing stones at the Police and push them back on the Bridge



1.33pm: More from Peter Bouckaert, from Human Rights Watch, in Alexandria:

The police have now given up fighting the protesters. The police and protesters are now talking, with protesters bringing water and vinegar (for teargas) to the police. Afternoon prayer has just been called and hundreds are praying in front of the mosque in east Alexandria.

3:40 pm - Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal, in Suez, says that the seizure of the al-Arbayyin police station in the city is symbolic: Israel used it as a command post during the 1973 war. Protesters now say they're fighting an "identical battle" against the government of president Hosni Mubarak.

3:46 pm - Just to give you a sense of how fast things are moving in Egypt: On Gelaa Street outside of our bureau in Cairo, where hundreds of protesters were peacefully praying just half an hour ago, police have now cleared everyone out with tear gas. One of the capital's landmarks, the Hilton Ramses hotel, is right next door, and tourists have been driven inside off their balconies by the wafting clouds of gas

3:50 pm - Our sister station Al Jazeera Arabic has been reporting from throughout Egypt today, they're currently telling us of other large protests in Port Said, which lies at the mouth of the Suez Canal on the Mediterranean Sea, and in Damietta, a town in the Nile Delta.
