The Day After

A quick holiday roundup of reactions from Egypt today: Al Jazeera English's live blog offers most of the main points of the day as the country reels from the carnage of Sunday and ponders its implications. Blog posts, some by eyewitnesses: Ursula Lindsey at The Arabist, Zeinobia's ongoing postings here and here, and Sarah Carr,who wrote an eyewitness account for English Al-Masry al-Youm, reproduces it at her  blog. Mahmoud Salem ("Sandmonkey") had trouble posting to his blog so he put his commentary on Facebook, here. I'd recommend reading them all. I haven't delved deeply into the Arabic coverage yet, but these English posts give you a good place to start.
