Egypt Boiling Over - Past Midnight

It is now well past 2 AM in Cairo and tens of thousands of protesters are still gathered in one of Cairo's largest squares, which is appropriately named Liberation Square.

There are confirmed reports of at least two civilians killed, one police officer killed, several hundred wounded and several hundred arrested.

Twitter is alive with reports of police following protesters down side roads and arresting them. Many reports of live ammunition being used along with the tear gas and water cannons we saw before.

Here is a video from Liberation Square in Cairo showing the police firing tear gas:

Here is a video from a demonstration in Alexandria, also at night, where a building sized picture of President Mubarak is set on fire to cheers from the crowd:
