Our coverage of the ongoing unrest in Egypt - reported by our fellows!
Thank you so much to our supporters who have helped 18 Days in Egypt document stories, like the Port Said tragedy that occurred in Egypt yesterday.
We have six Journalism Fellows on the ground at this moment, covering the events which began when a soccer match turned violent. Our 18 Days in Egypt website now features a very informative and moving stream shedding light on some of those killed in the violent clashes in Port Said today. We invite you to watch it: My Heroes of Revolution.
Below are streams that we have produced in the last 12 hours!
