Egypt Museum Being Used as Base by Internal Security

CNN reports that a cameraman shooting on the square in front of the museum was dragged inside and his camera confiscated, and put in a pile of other cameras, by what he described as Mukhabarat or internal security officers. It seems that the museum has not just been protected by the military but also turned into a command post for the anti-democratic elements in the Mubarak government. This is a very dangerous development that carries with it the danger that the museum itself may become a target of enraged protestors if the situation turns violent again.
