An old woman was shouting hysterically in front of the military court, where her son was being interrogated, before she fainted. Dozens of protesters gathered outside the Military Court on Sunday, in solidarity with journalist Rasha Azab and her editor Adel Hammouda, who’ve been summoned by the military prosecutor over Rasha’s reporting of torture and human rights violations the military police has been involved in.

I heard some of the most militant anti-army chants today, even when the protest was not that big. Demonstrators accused the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces of being US agents, cowards in front of the Israelis but only brave when facing Egyptian protesters.
