A Troubled Friday

The bloodshed is continuing in Tripoli today, but there is unrest in a lot of other places, including reports of armed men trying to break up the strike in Tahrir Square in Cairo, and the Army is apparently blocking access to demonstrators near the Egyptian Parliament. We may be seeing a new phase of the crisis in Egypt, as demonstrators opposed to Prime Minister Ahmad Rashid may be confronting the Army. The picture is still unclear, but I'll try to post more later when the dust settles.
