Thousands still camped out in Cairo

Pro-military thugs attack peaceful protesters in Cairo on July 23, 2011.

Thousands of angry Egyptian protesters are still camped out in Cairo’s landmark Liberation Square, despite bloody clashes with pro-military rule thugs on Saturday night.

The protesters have been camped out in Liberation Square since July 8. They are demanding an end to the military rule in their country.

The protesters have camped out in Liberation Square and other major squares across the country to demand more freedom and a civilian government.

Meanwhile, fierce street fights began after military forces blocked demonstrators from reaching the ruling military council headquarters in Cairo.

Later, police fired tear gas and the thugs attacked people with stones and Molotov cocktails from rooftops.

“The thugs are surrounding us, the riot police is with them and the army is doing nothing,” AFP quoted a political activist as saying.

“They beat everyone, even the girls. We won’t stop talking,” a female activist said.
