How Egypt’s papers cover the clashes
State-run daily al-Ahram was clear on its position on Thursday morning. “Millions in the street to support Mubarak” ran its front page headline.
A subtitle added that “Marches and protests in the regions to salute the decisions taken by Mubarak.” According to that particular newspaper, many Egyptians were satisfied with the speech given by their president on Tuesday night. And his supporters are peaceful: “Millions of silent people in regions across Egypt came out to show their support for Mubarak’s speech,” it writes.
