The family of Mohamed Bouazizi, the young Tunisian from Sidi Bouzid whose act of self-immolation triggered the Tunisian Uprising, has a message for the families in Libya who have lost their loved ones to the violent repression of the protests. Bouazizi, a 26-year-old street vendor, set himself on fire on December 17 after police abused and humiliated him. He died of his burns on January 4. The protest movement that began in Sidi Bouzid swelled to become a nationwide phenomenon, and spread to other countries in North Africa and the Middle East. Most recently, it reached Libya. Hundreds of Libyans have been killed as Muammar Gaddafi attempts to petrify the protests against his regime. Menobia Bouazizi, Mohamed's mother, recorded this message for their families. Her family sent the video to Al Jazeera.
Libyans are digging their heels in protests in key cities - despite the violent response from the police as they try to curb the anti-government demonstrations. World leaders are rounding on Libyan authorities - calling for an immediate end to the clashes. Increasing numbers of protesters are demanding for an end to the 41-year rule of Colonel Gaddafi. Hundreds have been killed and over a thousand injured during a week of unrest, with reports of airstrikes from the country's own military on Monday. Rumours spread that the Libyan leader had fled the trouble, but Gaddafi later made a brief and defiant TV appearance saying he was still in the country. One of his sons blamed exiles and outsiders for pushing Libya to the brink of civil war, and denied that live ammunition was being used on demonstrators. Some Libyan ambassadors have quit over the use of force on civilians in protest, and want the UN to intervene.
Rahma, an activist in Libya's capital, tells Al Jazeera that her father - a US citizen - was arrested after a joining a peaceful protest in front of Tripoli's main courthouse on Sunday.
Crowds are gathering in Cairo's Tahrir Square to celebrate the end of Hosni Mubarak's thirty year rule It has been a week since Mubarak was forced out of office by an unprecedented wave of protests. Several hundred military police in red berets are keeping watch over the square. Meanwhile Egyptian authorities have arrested three former government ministers and a businessman suspected of corruption. Al Jazeera has this live report from the Egyptian capital.
[WARNING: This video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing] Troops and tanks have locked down the Bahraini capital of Manama after riot police swinging clubs and firing tear gas smashed into demonstrators in a pre-dawn assault, killing at least four people. Hours after the attack on Manama's main Pearl Roundabout, the military announced a ban on gatherings, saying on state TV that it had "key parts" of the capital under its control. Khalid Al Khalifa, Bahrain's foreign minister, justified the crackdown as necessary because the demonstrators were "polarising the country" and pushing it to the "brink of the sectarian abyss". Speaking to reporters after meeting with his Gulf counterparts, he also said the violence was "regrettable". Two people had died in police firing on the protesters prior to Thursday's deadly police raid. An Al Jazeera correspondent, who cannot be named for security reasons, went to Salmaniya hospital, which was thrown into chaos by a stream of wounded protesters from Pearl Roundabout.
Protests continue in Bahrain's capital Manama, as demonstrators gather at pearl roundabout, their own version of Tahrir Square. Al Jazeera's correspondent in Manama reports.
In the Middle East, anti-government demonstrations have spread to Libya with hundreds of people taking to the streets in the first sign of the country's unrest. The uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt have triggered a domino effect of protests calling for reform across the Arab world. Two protesters in Bahrain were killed and several others wounded in violence there. Police had to use tear gas and batons to disperse the crowds. In Iran, members of Parliament called for the execution of opposition leaders they say orchestrated protests on Monday that saw two people killed. President Ahmadinejad also vowed to punish the organisers, while the US strongly backed the opposition. Egypt itself is gripped by labour strikes, where interim power is now in the hands of the military which is reworking the constitution. But some experts believe with the ideological splits, the army leadership has more to worry about from US interference. RT on Facebook: www.facebook.com RT on Twitter: twitter.com
Following Monday's protests, in which at least two protesters died, the Iranian government is moving to hold the two opposition leaders who called for the demonstration to be held accountable.
In Yemen, armed police beat back thousands of protesters as marches continued in the capital Sanaa for a third day. Demonstrators were calling for political reform, and an end to president Ali Abdullah Saleh's 23 year rule on Sunday. Al Jazeera's Bhanu Bhatnagar reports.
It has been a remarkable two-and-a-half weeks for Egypt - with developments coming thick and fast. Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley takes a look back at the 18 days that shook the world.

Mr. Said, a 28-year-old Egyptian businessman, was pulled from an Internet cafe in Alexandria last June by two plainclothes police officers, who witnesses say then beat him to death in the lobby of a residential building. Human rights advocates said he was killed because he had evidence of police corruption. The Egyptian police and security services have a well-earned reputation for brutality and snuffing out political opposition. But in Mr. Said, they unwittingly chose the wrong target. Within five days of his death, an anonymous human rights activist created a Facebook page — We Are All Khaled Said — that posted cellphone photos from the morgue of his battered and bloodied face, and YouTube videos played up contrasting pictures of him happy and smiling with the graphic images from the morgue. By mid-June, 130000 people joined the page to get and share updates about the case. It became and remains the biggest ...

He says it is time for Washington to make a reappraisal of their relationship with the Muslim and Arab world, not just with respect to what is happening Egypt.

Will the protests and riots in Egype, Tunisia, Yemen, and Albania be the beginning of true change, or just create the illusion of change while the globalists via the IMF and World Bank continue on with their agenda? GIven that the protest-organizing groups have been funded by US organizations and/or have ties to the CIA, I wouldn't get my hopes up too much. You know the old saying 'the more things change, they more they stay the same'? If the Egyptians want real change, they are going to have to get their country back from the globalists. www.thestar.com seattletimes.nwsource.com www.montrealgazette.com www.globalresearch.ca See the following channel for footage from Egypt and Tunisia: youtube.com

CAIRO (AP) -- Thousands of anti-government protesters, some hurling rocks and climbing atop an armored police truck, clashed with riot police Tuesday in the center of Cairo in a Tunisia-inspired demonstration to demand the end of Hosni Mubarak's nearly 30 years in power. Police responded with blasts from water cannons and set upon crowds with batons and acrid clouds of tear gas to clear demonstrators crying out "Down with Mubarak" and demanding an end to Egypt's grinding poverty, corruption, unemployment and police abuses. Tuesday's demonstration, the largest Egypt has seen for years, began peacefully, with police showing unusual restraint in what appeared to be a calculated strategy by the government to avoid further sullying the image of a security apparatus widely seen as little more than corrupt thugs in uniforms. With discontent growing over economic woes, and the toppling of Tunisia's president still resonating in the region, Egypt's government - which normally responds with swift retribution to any dissent - needed to tread carefully. But as crowds filled downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square - waving Egyptian and Tunisian flags and adopting the same protest chants that rang out in the streets of Tunis - security personnel changed tactics and the protest turned violent.
