Cairo Protests Reveal the 'True Face of Mubarak'

From Cairo, Democracy Now!'s Sharif Kouddous reports on the increasing violence surrounding the protests against President Hosni Mubarak. “What happened last night," Kouddous says, "this brutal assault by the Mubarak regime, was the true face of Hosni Mubarak.”

Joining Kouddous, Mona El Seif, an Egyptian activist, says that Egyptians are now safer in Tahrir Square than they are outside the square. Thugs have been attacking people with food and medical supplies, and journalists have been assaulted and arrested in the past few days.
