[quote:DoorBert:MV8xNzA5MzEzXzI4MjYwMjQ3XzFGNEQ4N0I0] Doctors at Cairo's Tahrir Square said injuries include gunshot wounds, excessive tear gas inhalations and beatings to the head. "I have received many people suffering of convulsions," said Tarek Salama a medic in a makeshift hospital in Tahrir Square. "Lots of gunshot wounds from rubber and bird shots. And I have seen two cases who have been hit with actual live bullets." Tahrir Square -- once a center of euphoria following the ouster of longtime President Hosni Mubarak in February -- continues to be a major flashpoint for the unrest. "People here feel that they have been cheated and that they have moved from an autocracy to a military dictatorship," protester Mosa'ab Elshamy said. "So they are back to the square -- back to square one -- to ask for their rights once again." http://edition.cnn.com/2011/11/21/world/africa/egypt-protests/index.html?hpt=hp_t1 [/quote]
