Thousands of demonstrators for and against President Hosni Mubarak, some on horses and camels, fought running battles in and around Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Wednesday, despite a call from Egypt’s powerful military for the president’s opponents to “restore normal life.”THE FRUITS OF ISLAM... RELIGION OF ROCK-THROWERS, TYRANNY, MISOGYNY, TERROR AND HEAVENLY VIRGINS FOR GENOCIDAL MURDERERS..
The pro-government supporters had arrived in their thousands, but were outnumbered by Mr. Mubarak’s opponents.
Their confrontations, which were descending into rock-throwing clashes, injected a new and perilous element into the eight-day standoff between anti-government protesters and Mr. Mubarak, hours after he offered to step down in September and President Obama urged a faster transition. The fighting was the first since the antigovernment protesters laid claim to Tahrir Square days ago as they pursued their campaign for Mr. Mubarak’s ouster.
