Egyptian Protests: Update II

News on Twitter is that Egypt has blocked SMS and now has just turned off the Internet there.  Apparently this happened right after AP posted video of a man being shot (h/t @arabist).

Things are getting more violent in Egypt, especially Suez.

Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei has arrived in Cairo now.

To my friends in Cairo - Stay Safe!

Edit:  The hackers group Anonymous has joined the Egyptian protests, by attacking Egyptian government web sites.  See their press release via Sophos.
