The Egyptian military entered Cairo on Friday in order to share security duty with a police force overwhelmed by pro-democracy protests. The state attempted to impose a mandatory curfew, but demonstrators remained in the streets and, in one case, lit a police car on fire before dumping it into the Nile. The headquarters of the state’s ruling party was also set on fire, and loud gunshots and explosions were heard in the area around the building. The Egyptian government has also placed opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei, who returned to the country Thursday, under house arrest. Al Jazeera English reports that there have been 1,030 injuries from the protests so far and 11 deaths.
