HRW Fears Army May Open Fire at Protestors

HRW fears that Egypt's army may open fire on protesters during demonstrations planned for today

Human Rights Watch (HRW) fears that Egypt's army may open fire on protesters during demonstrations planned for today.

HRW’s Kenneth Roth told Reuters at the World Economic Forum that, "We are enormously fearful that the army would increase violence against protesters in Egypt, because the army there is more ruthless and much larger than the one in Tunisia."

Roth says so far the HRW has records of 1 000 people being arrested and the violence from the police was also against journalists and foreign media, not just Egyptian protesters, and the government did say that there will be zero tolerance to protests.
