Three of the four front page pieces in Tahrir build the quickly escalating anti-army narrative (not that it didn’t exist, but the recent clashes seem to be taking it to a new height)
Above, a photo displays Hosni Mubarak sitting beside General Tantawi. Tahrir News seems to frame the day’s headlines that follow with the bit of text beside the photo:
“Who is ruling Egypt now? Is it the military council, who took control of the government on February 11, or is it Mubarak from his seat in the medical center, and his cronies in Tora prison, and his men which learned to obey him on the Military Council? Nothing has changed, it’s the same violence, the same barbaric way of ridding demonstrators, the same insidious killing of Egypt’s youth.”
Above the picture of the clashes: “Did the army and police collude to burn the Scientific research center?”
A photo connects the Institute for the Advancement of Scientific Research, pointed to on the left and which burned yesterday amid the ongoing clashes, to a firefighting compound across the street from it, where materials could have apparently been garnered to put out the flames, but weren’t.
And worse, just below this photo:
Above, a split screen photo suggests the same army member seen clashing with a woman in the street as the one setting fire to the research institute, this time in civilian clothing.
And so Tahrir News suggests that the army, the police, and even the former Mubarak regime, are all colluding to foster the current havoc. Round two election coverage picks up on page 10.
