Right now on CNN Anderson Cooper is reporting from a semi-darkened hotel room because he has been told to barricade himself and his crew and to turn off the lights for their personal safety.
Gunfire is periodically interrupting the program as it appears that somebody, presumably either pro-Mubarak protesters or police or elements of the army, have opened up on the square.
This is NOT good, folks.
I can’t say much more than go turn on CNN and watch.
The State Department is urging all US citizens to report to the airport *immediately* for evacuation.
