#Egypt: tweets from anti-SCAF and pro-SCAF rallies #Cairo #Tahrir

Boths sides of the recent turmoil... But I hear, as you see here, that "foreigners" are kicked out of the pro-SCAF rally.

#Tahrir #Cairo some demonstrators coating skin with diluted white stomach medicine against tear gas effects.
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Surgical masks for sale #tahrir against tear gas. 1 Egyptian pound (10p) field hospitals set up on pavements. Mainly gas victims #Cairo
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Spending evening In #Tahrir #cairo. Hard to say how many here, maybe over 100,000 & more arriving. Tension, tear gas and casualties.
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
This crisis brewing for months. While military has power and not under civilian control Egyptian rev half completed. #Tahrir #Cairo
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Tens of thousands milling around #Tahrir. Routes left open for ambulances. Mainly tear gas victims ferried back from clashes on motorbikes
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
People here in #Tahrir #cairo looking like theyre set for the night. Mainly under 30s, lot of anger against #SCAF
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
#cairo tale of 2 cities. Away from #Tahrir city seemingly as normal. Tahrir a different world, revolution again.
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Suggests military rulers #SCAF have their support too. Protest without unifying factor of Mubarak much more complicated #Tahrir #Cairo
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
More clashes on side street leading to Interior Ministry. Man now hanging an effigy of military chief Tantawi from a traffic light #Tahrir
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Huge anger against Tantawi. Moment of joy when false rumours swept gas-choked demo that military council stepped down. Untrue so far #Tahrir
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Outside #cairo interior ministry close #Tahrir truce between rioters and police. Very hostile reception for foreign journalists
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
One said "film on my territory and I will kill" earlier very hostile reception from rioters "no Americans here" #Cairo #Tahrir I
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
Ultras - organised football fans - just marched back into #Tahrir. Been fighting police and now behave like conquering heroes #Cairo
Jeremy Bowen @BowenBBC
#Tahrir truce doesn't resolve underlying problem. Who's going to have last word in #Egypt -- civilians or military? #Cairo

Al Jaz Mubasher has an incredible camera on the front line of the renewed clashes on Mohamed Mahmoud. #egypt
Tamer El-Ghobashy @TamerELG
Protesters facing down cops on Mohamed Mahmoud are alternately chanting "peace" and singing the national anthem #egypt

For the record, I was against SCAF's role since literally day one. This is what I wrote in NYT on Feb 12: http://t.co/xDcAtOur #Egypt
Sharif Kouddous @sharifkouddous
@Repent11 @ay_abouhussein I am fine. Heading to Tahrir as usual. Thanks for asking.
Shadi Hamid @shadihamid
How do u write constitution w-out first having some kind of election? Otherwise constitution won't be representative or legitimate. #egypt
Martin Chulov @martinchulov
#egypt election to start on schedule mon, #scaf announces. But mood in #tahrir uncertain. People fear poll being set up to fail.
Martin Chulov @martinchulov
Some in #tahrir euphoric about election news. Others say vital steps not taken pre-poll. Too unstable & polarised to proceed.
