traducción del inglés al español

El tema original estaba un poco abarrotado con el número de imágenes en la
pantalla por lo que abrió esta segunda parte para mantener la presentación de informes sobre las protestas de Egipto. La situación cambia constantemente y los manifestantes están ignorando los
toques de queda por la noche.

El ejército parece ser de cobertura es apuestas. Salir a la calle según lo dicho,
pero en realidad no dejar a la gente de protesta, que debe ser una
preocupación importante para Hosni Mubarak, ya que el ejército ha estado
involucrado en la política egipcia durante décadas. ¿Podría ser que los jefes
del ejército no son más que esperar el momento derecho de huelga, eliminar
Mubarak del poder y tomar el control ellos mismos?
El saqueo se ha convertido en un problema en las grandes ciudades y la gente
es la creación de puntos locales de verificación para evitar que sus casas de
ser despojado. Mientras esto sucede en miles de turistas se encuentran aún
en Egipto, que goza de los sitios históricos, el clima cálido y playas hermosas,
pero ¿por cuánto tiempo? Algunos tour operadores europeos han comenzado
a evacuar a sus clientes, lo que significa trabajar menos, menos ingresos y
más frustración. La pregunta principal es ¿cuánto tiempo las protestas
continúan, será Mubarak capear el temporal o va a empacar sus cosas y salir
de Egipto para aguas más tranquilas?

ACTUALIZACIÓN 31-01-2011: Nuevas imágenes agregó. ¿Habrá una gran
marcha de millones de hombres en el mañana El Cairo? Si no es que voy a
publicar las fotos.

ACTUALIZACIÓN 01/02/2011: Imágenes de la gran marcha en El Cairo
añadido (de 79 hacia abajo). Por lo que sabemos que las cosas fueron
pacíficas.
Hubo incluso los partidarios del presidente Hosni Mubarak.

ACTUALIZACIÓN 01/02/2011: El presidente Mubarak, organizó una
conferencia de prensa, que fue televisado en vivo, en el que anunció que no
buscará la reelección en septiembre, pero la gente quiere que se vaya ahora
y no esperar otros 9 meses.
ACTUALIZACIÓN 02/02/2011: Las imágenes añadido de manifestantes pro
y
anti Mubarak están luchando entre sí. El comienzo de la lucha final por la
libertad?

The original topic was getting a bit crowded with the number of images on display so we opened up this second part to

keep reporting on the Egyptian Protests. The situation constantly changes and protesters are ignoring the evening curfews.

The army seems to be hedging it’s bets. Going out onto the streets as told, but not actually stopping the people from protesting,

which must come as a major worry for Hosni Mubarak as the army has been involved in Egyptian politics for decades. Could it

be that the army chiefs are merely waiting for the right moment to strike, remove Mubarak from power and take control

themselves?
Looting has also become a problem in the big towns and people are setting up local check points to prevent their houses from

being stripped bare. While this is going on thousands of tourists are still in Egypt enjoying the historic sites, warm weather

and beautiful beaches, but for how long? Some European tour operators have begun evacuating their customers, meaning even

less work, less income and more frustration. The main question is how long will the protests continue, will Mubarak ride out the

storm or will he pack up his things and leave Egypt for calmer waters?
UPDATE 31-01-2011: New images added. Will there be a big million man march in Cairo tomorrow? If there is we’ll post the

pictures.
UPDATE 01-02-2011: Images of the big march in Cairo added (from 79 down). As far as we know things were peaceful.

There were even supporters of President Hosni Mubarak.
UPDATE 01-02-2011: President Mubarak held a news conference, which was televised live, in which he announced he would

NOT be seeking re-election in September, but the peope want him to go now and not wait another 9 months.
UPDATE 02-02-2011: Images added of pro and anti Mubarak protesters are fighting each other. The beginning of the end fight

for freedom?
