Thus, we can see the protests are becoming more violent by the minute, and the army didn't intervene. At least two mad camels bit a Finnish, a Canadian and a Costa Rican journalist at one of the entrances to the square. The drama of these journalists was tempered by the remarkable example of both pro- and anti- Mubarak protesters, who jointly carried the two men and the woman to a side street for improvised first aid and shock treatment. At least one of these camels was trained to growl in such a way that resembles the word "Mubarak" with amazing precision. Both sides accused the other of training the camel, "Salma", to growl in that way. Stones and Molotov cocktails were hurled from building roofs overlooking the plaza by pro-Mubarak hooligans, and at least in one case, the army suspiciously prevented anti-Mubarak protesters to go after them. The army which stood aside doing nothing, grew impatient by the minute. There were at least a dozen military personnel staging stands selling rugs, Helal sandwiches, cigarettes, Egyptian flags, pro- and anti- Mubarak posters, stickers and memorabilia. Large crowds of journalists were seen buying at these improvised stands next to Armored Personnel Carriers.
