There was another strike in Terminal 3 of the airport today and a lot of flights got delayed for hours and I heard they fired 15 and arrested about 30 of the protesters, then things went back to normal.

I think they should rename Cairo into Chaos city, very suitable.

There was also some kind of kerfuffle with the riot police at City Stars mall yesterday involving angry employees of a grocery store. Didn't get the full story on that one. Cairo.
