Most ( but not all ) forms of communcation have now been shut down by the Egyptian Government, as the rioting in Cairo takes hold for the 4th day running.
In brief the news is that the police are now being over run by litterally thousands of protestors heading into Tahir Square, Ocotber 6th bridge has also fallen to the protesting hoards that are flwoing across it.

Violent clashes have taken place this morning in Alexandria, and its been reported that more peacefull protests are taking place to day in Hurghada .
