Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets calling for President Mubarak to step down after his 30 year autocratic rule.
...The protesters have been met with extreme violence as Mubarak orders the police and the military to quell the street protests. Over 100 have been killed and many more injured. Still Hosni Mubarak refuses to listen to his people.
Mubarak has ordered a complete shutdown of the internet and moblie phone networks in Egypt in order to stop protesters communicating with each other and the outside world thus leaving them unprotected.
Vodafone are blaming the internet blackout on “problems” with their service, refusing to acknowledge their total and utter compliance and therefore support of a corrupt, violent and undemocratic regime.
The USA has issued statements regarding the unrest in Egypt but has stopped short of actually taking any action to improve the situation or state that Mubarak step down due to Mubarak being a close ally of the US administration. America continues to state that it considers it's relationship with Hosni Mubarak to be 'friendly.'
