|Man in a Desert||
It is now 19:22 GMT and what we see and hear is that the day's popular protests are being transformed in some places into looting and chaos despite the curfew. Conspicuous in his absence is President Mubarak. About 4 hours ago news networks reported that he would be speaking "shortly". And nothing since.
No other government official has publicly addressed the situation. The regime is in crisis.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
