Person's account of storming of state security offices in Alexandria. BBC tells of similar activity in Cairo. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-12657464
A sign on one wall said: ” trusting someone is the first step to being defeated”, the author's translation of “الإطمئنان أول طريق الانهيار” .
Sadly, that was the personnel marital counseling office. (Kidding.)
