Egyptian army no longer seen as protesters' friend

On Saturday, bloodstains, bullet casings and smoldering army trucks littered Cairo's Tahrir Square, where only two months ago soldiers and protesters celebrated together the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. The military stormed the square in the middle of the night, amateur video showed, beating protesters and firing weapons. One person was killed and more than 70 others wounded.
