EGYPT: Al Jazeera English video from Tahrir Square

January 31, 2011 |  5:00 pm


Al Jazeera English reports on the increase in protesters gathering Monday in Tahrir Square, likely leading up to a planned million-man rally Tuesday.

The report says the Internet is still completely inaccessible, and that many cellphone services remain limited, as only local calls can be made from mobile to mobile.

Some reports on Twitter surfaced on Monday afternoon that all mobile phone service had been cut off within the country.

Abdurahman Warsame, with Al Jazeera English, reported on Twitter on Monday afternoon: “Noor was last standing internet provider but it was shut down as well.”
