Egyptian Military Escalates Violence in Cairo, Killing Protesters

Army continues bloody crackdown on protesters, signaling shift in response.

UPDATE: Military rulers in Egypt used more violence against protesters on Saturday, setting their shelters on fire and beating them viciously, according to The New York Times.

The latest developments in the country, which has been engulfed by widespread protests and military violence in recent weeks running up to national elections for a civilian government there, suggest that the military council may now be ignoring the requests of the civilian advisory council to work with protesters.

As the latest protest in Cairo entered its second day, Prime Minister Kamel Ganzouri denied that the military had used force, despite the fact that clashes between protesters and the military had left nine dead from gunshot wounds.
