I want to let you in on the secret: they are to police or to soldiers and asking them to demonstrate for , and to bring anyone else they know so that it appears that has lots of supporters.

Regarding the first account, two people have left comments raising issues regarding the accent of the man in the phone conversation and the area code given for the phone call.  Others have responded to these by saying that the accent belongs to a rural Egyptian and the area code is a result of having international phone calls relayed through California, a tactic employed to get news out from on-the-ground while internet communications had been shut off.
