Egypt: Wafd and Mubarak

Yesterday, Elijah was inside the Wafd Party headquarters as rival factions clashed there and 23 journalists, lawyers, and party employees were injured during clashes with supporters of Noman Gomaa. Elijah uploaded few photos which shows the clashes. A few days ago, Elijah also blogged about Gamal Mubarak's first live TV interview and the prospects for succession, eventually proposing Baheyya for president.

  • Great post Haitham! Elijahs coverage of the wafd HQ was brilliant, the comments by Josh and Elijah gave additional insight as well, and the Baheyya for president made my morning the other day!
