"It is 4am Cairo time. An attack had been launched against those in the sit in, in front of the Cabinet of Ministers and Parliament. Water is pouring on them in this cold, stones and Molotov's from security. This means that soon they will progress into using tear gas and rubber bullets, then live ammo and toxic gases." - Ahmed Salah,

Amnesty International and The Egyptian Organization For Human Rights have documented extensive cases of human rights abuses such as torture, killing and forced virginity tests under the regime of Mubarak between 1993-2007, including the 2011-2012 revolution when SCAF [Supreme Council of Armed Forces] were granted rule over Egypt.

"A massacre is underway in Tahrir. More and more troops are coming in covering more entrances to the square. Already stormed the mosque and the church that were converted into hospitals for the injured and injured and kidnapped the doctors as well as everyone else.  This keeps getting darker and darker, people are getting ready to die and write their names on their arms. I can't remember the last time I was so desperate and frustrated. The war of attrition against us worked, they exhausted us to the maximum, and now they move for the kill." - Ahmed Salah
