The 2011 Egyptian protests

The 2011 Egyptian Protests

On 26 January, riots continued, with protesters numbering in the thousands, although no accurate estimate has yet been made. There was increased use of violence from both the protesters and the police, with one protester and one police official killed in Cairo. Suez experienced a dramatic uprising, with many being fired upon by live ammunition, and both protesters and police being beaten. Protesters in Suez also managed to set fire to several government buildings, including the police station. Police eventually retreated from Suez, though later the army took up the position of blocking protesters.
27 January
Protests were not as large on 27 January because preparations were being made for the planned large-scale uprising on 28 January. The Muslim Brotherhood declared full support for the protests, and members planned to take part during Friday's protests. Reformer and opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei promised to return in time for Friday's protests. ElBaradei also stated that if asked, he would take over as Egypt's president during the transitional period if Hosni Mubarak were to leave Egypt.
