Egypt in Photographs: From the Streets of Cairo

Egyptian human rights activist and Global Voices Advocacy contributor Ramy Raoof has been, like many Egyptian protestors, online only sporadically over the past few days.  When online, Raoof has uploaded photos taken on the streets of Cairo: photographs of the demonstrations, of street graffiti, and of soldiers, showing the world the view from the street.

Today, as Raoof was back online briefly, he tweeted a set of new photographs, urging followers to share them with the world:
