    Pro-Mubarak plain-clothes supporters threw camel droppings at a group of anti-Mubarak protesting women. It is all filmed on cel phone camera: The women picked it up, an put it inside a big bag taken from a construction site next to Tahrir square. At least 6 Mubarak thugs were taken down from their camels (one rode a tourist pony) and they were smeared with the droppings all over by the anti-Mubarak protesters, while they were chanting, "with our blood, with our soul we will defend you, Gigi Ibrahim." When an SMS reached her about the incident, she replied she saw how pro-Mubarak thugs had collected Nile water in plastic bottles. At least 45 anti-Mubarak protesters, and more than 20 pro-Mubarak paid hooligans, have been reportedly forced to drink Nile water. They are all well. A Mexican cameraman for TELMEX News, who was erroneously taken for a pro-Mubarak thug, was forced to drink Nile water. He is in critical condition at one of Cairo's finest hospitals.
