  • Amanpour Reports From Egypt

    Violence in Cairo, Egypt dramatically escalated on Feb. 2 as pro- and anti-Mubarak mobs clashed in Tahrir (Liberation) Square. Shots were fired and hundreds of injuries have been reported. Some protesters told ABC News' Christiane Amanpour that President Hosni Mubarak's announcement Tuesday night that he will not seek reelection is not enough and he needs to be gone now. Others fear that Egypt's economy and government will collapse if he's removed.

    Military officers would often fire warning shots into the air, telling Amanpour that they were trying to scare away looters. Looting has become rampant in Cairo after nightfall, and Egyptian officials said they were trying to protect their country's most precious artifacts. Looters reportedly ripped off the heads of two mummies at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo over the weekend.
