Mohamed Ibrahim Elmasry: Protests in Cairo

As the 5th day of protests against Egypt's president reached the late morning hours, I spoke with Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim Elmasry, a professor of computer engineering at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Elmasry is currently living in Cairo in order to film the protests in which thousands of Egyptians are calling for the resignation of the Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak. Dr. Elmasry is posting the videos on his facebook page out of solidarity with the protestors and in order to inform the world community of the minute-by-minute developments in Egypt. Our conversation ranges from the dynamic between the protesters, the police, and the military; Dr. Elmasry's own experiences in filming the crowds; and the future of Egypt.
