Protection and money.
My lab manager is also Egyptian, with family over there, and he's none too impressed with this announcement and worries for the next few days.
Exactly,Mubarak's fortune alone surpass 70 Billion dollars..it said that this amount can pay Egypt's depts. Mubarak said himself in todays statement that hes feeling insulted and humiliated by the foreign pressures and we where like "Good,Cry moar". I hope world countries will cooperate with us and send back those who escaped/will escape with there money even countries who are not members of the interpol.
People are not impressed here either,The revolution continues.
As for the vids..
Here is a police truck (central security forces) run over protesters killing one and one injured.
and here is a patriot fighter takes of his jacket in an obvious invitation to a battle with fists just to be shot down.

just a clearification,this Revolution isn't a hunger revolution..It's a revloution demanding 3 main things.. JUSTICE,FREEDOM and DIGNITY,from dignity splites the demands of normal life with incomes that matches the prices of products and services so when you work your ass off and your income can barely feed you and your familly you feel humiliated,so when people talk about the high food prices in the revolution they are not complaining about hunger (so no one dies from hunger in Egypt) but complaining about the lake of dignity caused by the government who's stealing what's ours.
Am not sure am following your question,Are you asking about those who escaped the country's billions out side of it? cause they didn't announce anything about that but am pretty sure that shit like that happened for sure.
As for the food prices,the new government stopped the rising of prices imediatlly and returned it back to normal in less than 48 hours..then freed the products temporarily from all sorts of taxes until this crisis is over. So those who kept there prices high inspite of that to make moar and moar profits got there stores broken down and stolen while no body protected them,Justice.

we don't want him dead,we want him to face justice.
