Chasse au journaliste en Egypte : "C'est un espion, tuez-le !"

La place Tahrir, le cœur du Caire et de la contestation avait pris un aspect familial et bon enfant. Venir manifester s’apparentait à une promenade du dimanche au jardin des Tuileries. Dans une ambiance festive, les Egyptiens venaient faire le tour de la place et y retrouvaient leurs amis. On discutait, on plaisantait, on prenait des photos. Des familles, papa, maman, le gamin sur les épaules ou dans les jambes, venaient faire une balade et profiter du soleil, du ciel azuré et des températures agréables de cette fin de mois de janvier.

Mardi 8 février Hier matin, je rends visite à mes amis arrêtés la veille et relâchés au bout de quatre heures d’une invraisemblable violence. En frappant à la porte de chez eux, j’essaie de charger mon geste de toute la tendresse du monde pour ne pas qu’un instant ils puissent imaginer que je leur sois hostile.

J’y pénètre doucement et je déambule à reculon dans la pièce, restant face à lui pour que s’il s’éveille il voit mon visage paisible et bienveillant.

Je parviens à peine à me figurer qu’ils ont vécu une chose pareille. Share photos on Twitter. Live blog Feb 6 - Egypt protests. From our headquarters in Doha, we keep you updated on all things Egypt, with reporting from Al Jazeera staff in Cairo and Alexandria.

Soldiers seem to have been tasked with crowd control near Tahrir Square, but the army has also stressed in several public statements that it will not fire on civilians. Thus, while the army deployed troops around Tahrir on Thursday – forming a protective ring around pro-democracy protesters – it was quickly forced to withdraw once heavy fighting picked up.
