Violent waves of protest continue to cause chaos in Egypt, where three demonstrators have already died across the country. Rioters congregated in front of the parliament building Tuesday, where police with shields, tear gas, and water cannons attempted to thwart protesters throwing rocks at the building. The events in Cairo were organized via Facebook, where tens of thousands of supporters announced on a protester page inspired by the uprising in Tunisia that they would take part in a "day of revolt." Demonstrators attacked a police water cannon vehicle in Tahrir Square and officers used batons to beat back protesters, according to the Associated Press. One rioter, 43-year-old lawyer Tareq el-Shabasi, said: "I came here today willing to die, I have nothing to fear." Egypt has many of the same social and political problems that caused unrest in Tunisia, including rising food costs, high unemployment rates, and anger at political corruption.
