Now another curfew starts at 4pm local time.
Rumours on Twitter said, military could take over government next night, others military will act harsh this time when people stay in the streets.

The army is clearing the streets from burnt police vehicles. The police is nowhere to be seen.

"It is incumbent upon the state to gain support for national objectives. Employment of instruments of power is designed to influence other nations and organizations to respond favorably. Therefore, impacting the decision making process is the underlying principle for IOP power projection and highlights the psychological element. During a period of declining resources and increased world competition, the United States must find new ways to reach out and promote American interests. In order to maximize the impact and exploit the influence events create, joint planning and interagency coordination of psychological operations are critical."

The situation looks very relaxed on Al Jazeera's live streem.

Civilians are redirecting cars and also tanks. And the soldiers accept it.

In 27 minutes the next curfew starts.

As expected, people ignore the curfew order. No confrontation with the military so far. But there are reports about fightings at the Ministry of the Interior.

protesters giving flowers and shaking hands with military but no decisive side taken by military.. this now one hour past curfew.

APC covered in people as it slowly moves through the massive crowd.

Gunfire said to be heard at central money printing complex.

Death toll now around the 100 mark.

The body of a fallen protester is being carried in a huge crowd as part of the funeral procession whilst thousands of voices shout for Mubarak to go.

Mubarak holding meetings as to what to do next...

Protesters continue to cheer from the top of military vehicles in the city centre.

It's almost constantly changing news ...

The Egyptian General, along with another figure which I havn't had the chance of catching it's name, are now both vice presidents.

The 'oath taking' was now broadcasted on Israeli Ch.2.

Edit - the other person's name is Omar Suliman.

More witnesses reports are saying the police are being driven out of several places, while the army and the public are apparently holding hands and celebrating together.

Seems this thing is about to be over, now the political mess will begin.

Didnt Egypts internet go completely down a couple of years ago, due to an underwater cable being "accidentally cut"?
Sounds like a test of their version of an internet kill switch to me.

Narus has a headquarters. Wouldn't it be great if people in the USA took to the streets outside their headquarters to protest their involvement in cutting off the communications networks that the people have been paying for through monthly bills and taxes.

It helps me to remember that this corporation is run by people. These people:

i heard at least 200 last night on fox. not sure how that happened if none of them were armed and the police/army wouldn't fire on them.

Yes, the 100 exceeded was live on Al Jazeera. At least three were killed, when people tried to storm the Ministry of Interior.

Here is a very promising tweet from Sharif Kouddous directly from Cairo:

Muslim Brotherhood chanting Allah Akbar. Crowd stopped them chanting louder: Muslim, Christian, we're all Egyptian

(Yes, he still can tweet. Only pictures or media is impossible.)

Thanks...the number has been all over the place since this began. Understandable during chaotic times. Have to agree with you about how this is even happening. Seems we might not be getting the whole story (not a shock with our controlled media), and probably due partly to damage control as the people who were surprised by this try to minimize the impact of these unexpected events, and partly to molding perceptions so they fit into plans for the next steps.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the, or was the scare tactical police of Mubarak,
that kept the population inline. The egyption police on the otherhand are regular citizens.
That's why when the police first rolled out last night, the demonstrators were cheering them.
Then they rolled out The Brotherhood and the military, which is in fact the military police of the region.
This is setting off a rather difficult postion for the regular police, because whoever comes out on top.
they will answer too.

wait wait. you mean to say, the muslim brotherhood has been working for mubarak all this time?
and they were sent into the frey to stop the rioters? this is confusing.
