Molotov Cocktails and Gunfire were traded between the two protest groups all through the night. At around 11:00 A.M. in Egypt, tanks and infantry moved in between the two groups. Hundreds of soldiers with rifles moved to all of the front-lines of the groups and cleared highways from which firebombs and rocks were being launched.
The Egyptian military is finally intervening to stop the deaths (death toll is estimated at 5, with 600 injured). This has made some protesters let go of the belief that the military and its soldiers were a part of the “paid thugs” that were hired by the government or businesses affiliated with Hosni Mubarak.
All of those beliefs are still unconfirmed. The Obama Administration and David Cameron still push for Mubarak to resign quickly while establishing order in the reform; they are now backing the people of Egypt more than ever.
