Army takes control of Cairo

The Egyptian army has beefed up its presence in Cairo: tanks block the streets and soldiers have arrested scores of looters.

The army took firm control of Rafah and cracked down on Hamas.

Hundreds of inmates were allegedly killed in jails to prevent their escape.

The only threat to Mubarak’s regime comes now from the army itself, but so far it remains loyal to the president.

Curiously, just a week ago the chief of Israeli Military Intelligence called the Egyptian regime ‘very stable.’
