And this was the picture at noon. Tahrir was the scene of what may have been the biggest muslim prayer ever. Amd thousands kept streaming towards the square. No thugs - no rumours (Al-Masry Al-Youm had a whole pieces about the erumours pread, probably by the secret police, about Israeli's who tried to subvert Egypt with these protests) - none of these things withheld the Egyptians from, protesting in even bigger numbers than last week. And in Alexandria the story was no different.
