About 30 minutes before the show, pro- and anti-government protesters started to converge in Cairo's Tahrir Square. It started out with opposing chants. But we had a bad feeling it wouldn't stay peaceful.
Then the rock-throwing started. Just as quickly, we heard that it stopped... that some protesters embraced each other and knelt in prayer.
But that changed when a group rode in on horses and camels. From that moment on, we were monitoring a very fluid situation full of dramatic confrontation, though no military intervention.
As of this posting, it is still unfolding.
