Egyptian Tienanmen?

7 02 2011

The following video has been uploaded to YouTube.  At around 2 minutes it shows a single man walking up to Egyptian police, removing his jacket.  The police shoot him.

The caption reads:

This is why no one will leave Tahrir Square. This is a video from Alexandria, 31/01/2011

The kid was probably angry because his friend was shot, so he walked up to the police, he showed them he had no weapons on him, but they still shot him anyways when he was leaving.

The death toll from the violence had risen to 54 dead and 1,000 injured by 28 January. As of 30 January, Al-Jazeera reported as many as 150 deaths in the protests. As of 29 January, at least 102 people were known to have died, many or most shot. The dead included at least 10 policemen, 3 of whom were killed in Rafah.

Another video documents shocking brutality.

And the world wonders why the Egyptians are angry.
