The headline in opposition newspaper Al-Wafd reads “14 dead and 140 injured during street fights in Cairo” and “The cabinet states that the police will be reinstated immediately.” State-owned newspaper Al-Ahram reports that 13 died in Doweiqa and Manshiyet Nasser. Twelve houses and factories and 50 cars were burned in addition to 100 apartments being vandalized.
Students at Cairo University continued their demonstration demanding the resignation of the university’s presidents and deans, reported Al-Ahram. Yesterday afternoon, before the military emptied Tahrir Square, protesters against continued demonstrations in Tahrir and those participating in the sit-in clashed before military police interfered to disengage them.
On its front page, Al-Wafd publishes a blacklist of police officers accused of orchestrating torture plots under ousted President Hosni Mubarak and then-Interior Minister Habib al-Adly. Among the names listed are General Ali Mohamed Hegazy, General Tarek Mahmoud al-Rekaby, General Kamal Ali Sayed Abdallah, General Ibrahim Refaat Radwan Hussein, Tarek Mohamed Saad el-Din, Mohamed al-Mogy, Mahmoud Abdel Salam Mahmoud Amr Ghameima, Tarek Heikal, Abdel Hadi Aboul Kheir, Abdel Aziz al-Nahas, Moheb al-Gharabawi, Ahmed Rashid Soleiman, Mohamed al-Naggar, Mohsen Radwan, Ashraf Aboul Naga, Said Beltagy, and Brigadier General Maher Tahoon. The list includes 74 State Security officers and 264 others from various police stations and prisons. The list is compiled by several human rights organizations and was given to the Attorney General by Ahmed Sobh, who heads the Islamic Youth Community.
In news of deposed regime figures, on its last page Al-Wafd writes “Gamal Mubarak loves villas and castles,” reporting on his various high-end properties. In another headline, the newspaper states that Gamal and Alaa Mubarak own 100 acres in Belbais in Sharqiya. Sources from the Ministry of Interior are reported as saying al-Adly married ten times in the last ten years.
On its front page, Al-Dostour writes “Amr Moussa: I did not wrongfully praise the Mubarak family and the Muslim Brotherhood is part of the community that cannot be alienated.” Another story alleges that Gamal Mubarak, al-Adly, Hussein Salem and State Security officers are behind the 2005 bombings in Sharm el-Sheikh.
On page 5, the newspaper reports experts saying recent sectarian strife in Afteeh and Moqattam “bares the fingerprints of the fallen regime.”
On its front page, privately-owned Al-Shorouk writes that the Atfeeh church will be rebuilt in two weeks and protesters have formed committees to protect places of worship. The privately-owned newspaper also reports that a Libyan delegation arrived yesterday in Cairo to deliver a message from Muammar Gadhafi to Egyptian officials.
Al-Ahram, according to a report by the Ministry of Health, reports the names of those killed and injured in the latest events of Moqattam and Manshiyet Nasser. According to the newspaper, military leader Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi called Coptic Pope Shenouda yesterday in the United States to check on his health.
In a special report by Al-Shorouk, the newspaper quotes Moussa saying “I will not be a new Mubarak.” In his seminar in Saqia al-Sawy, Moussa flirted with the US and the Muslim Brotherhood and called for a debate with potential presidential candidates Ahmed Zewail and Mohamed ElBaradei. The head of the Arab League was grilled by the attendees, with many berating him for his ties to the former regime. Moussa, however, seemed to please some of the attendees when he stated that there would be no wall between Egypt and Palestine, Suez Canal fees should be paid in Egyptian Pounds, and emphasized the importance of a peaceful nuclear program.
