Mubarak Backers Attack Protesters

Supporters of President Mubarak charged in Tahrir Square on horses and camels brandishing whips while others rained firebombs from rooftops in what appeared to be an orchestrated assault against protesters. Three people died and 600 were injured.

Mustafa el-Fiqqi, a top official from the ruling National Democratic Party, told The Associated Press that businessmen connected to the ruling party were responsible for what happened.
