Violence continues in Egypt, with both protesters and police at risk

These images were photographed on Friday, Jan. 28, but were just received in our image database today. They are a stark reminder of the toll the protests are taking. Richard Engel of NBC News reports the following from Cairo: "Many people have set up private vigilante groups in front of their homes…. People are afraid. This is no longer just a political movement with protesters on the streets, but there is a basic collapse of law and order,” he said. More than 100 people have been killed so far.

Engel reported that 4,000 people had been wounded and 500 others, many of them women, were missing. See his latest report.
