A suggestion for a new to-do list:
  • Clean-up lead to better summarize this article (it's mainly copied from 2011 Egyptian protests).
  • Expand the analysis of the government's response.
  • Add information about looting, law and order, and the roles of the police and army.
  • Check that relevant information added to 2011 Egyptian protests is also added here.

No objections it seems, so I'm updating it (except the lead is already fixed, thanks Lihaas)--Physics is all gnomes (talk) 12:56, 3 February 2011 (UTC)


new cabinet[edit]

A New list of office holders have been released. here are some:

  • Gawdat el-Malt, who has headed the audit office, was appointed the finance minister.
  • Mubarak retained his long-serving defense minister, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi — and gave him an additional title of deputy prime minister — and also kept Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit
  • Gaber Asfour, a prominent literary figure, was named culture minister
  • Egypt's most famous archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, was named state minister for antiquities, a new post
  • Ministry of Information --> Anas El Fiqqi (same)

Media crackdown[edit]

There should be a sub section devoted to the media crackdown during the protests. These links should be helpful.

Its certainly beyond any normal incident of an attack on journalist. There's a massive crackdown initiated by the state apparatus NMKuttiady (talk) 12:42, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
