‘The army is on their side!’

A video shot on the Friday of Anger, 28 January 2011, at the moment when the first army vehicles started moving into Tahrir via Qasr el-Nil Bridge. In the video you can see and hear cheers from the revolutionaries with great enthusiasm. This didn’t last long. They discovered the army was not coming in to support them, but to support the police. Hence, you can hear the youth shouting: الجيش معاهم! الجيش معاهم! (The army is on their side! The army is on their side!)

Later in the evening, a military jeep was stopped by the revolutionaries and set on fire after the army tried to move into Tahrir, from the opposite side (via Abdel Moneim Riyadh Square) to supply the police with ammo.

Seoul court orders Japan to pay damages over wartime sexual slavery

Via the Guardian:

The Seoul central district court on Friday said Japan was liable to compensate 12 women who were forced to work as so-called “comfort women”, in a ruling that is expected to inflict further damage on the countries’ already fraught ties.
Some historians say that as many as 200,000 women – mostly Koreans, but also Chinese, south-east Asians and a small number of Japanese and Europeans – were coerced or tricked into working in military brothels between 1932 and Japan’s defeat in 1945.
