Things escalated leading into a nonstop battle that lasted for exactly 100 hours between protesters and Central Security Forces in Mohamed Mahmoud street at Tahrir square. Protesters were using rocks and molotov cocktails against CSF's CR teargas, nerve gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition. Overall losses of protesters: at least 80 have been killed, hundreds arrested, thousands injured, many lost their eyes. (Photo by: Jonathan Rashad)
