Egypt's very thin blue line
The police are less willing to confront the people, who are still upset about beatings and killings during the revolution. Roughly one-third of Egypt has been hit by police strikes.
People in the city of Assiut in southern Egypt didn't understand at first who was pestering them. A group of motorcyclists dressed in white, wearing white turbans, carrying white flags and waving swords chased a passersby shouting "Allahu Akbar."
