If left to their own ways and means, this would probably have been a real person swinging. The Muslim Brotherhood seen smiling in the distance as they encourage the mobs, and don’t be fooled, though the media keeps denying it, the MB are busy stoking the fire. KGS

Mubarak hanged from lights at Cairo protest’s dawn
Emirates 24/7: An effigy depicting President Hosni Mubarak is seen hanging on a traffic light as Anti-government demonstrate in Tahrir square in downtown Cairo, Egypt. Egyptian authorities battled to save President Hosni Mubarak’s regime with a series of concessions and promises to protesters, but realities on the streets of Cairo may be outrunning his capacity for change.

“I will stay here till I die,” said Osama Allam as the grey Cairo dawn lifts on the biggest day of anger yet against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak, whose effigy hangs from nearby traffic lights.
Encircled by tanks and with troops filtering protesters streaming onto the square that has become the epicentre of a week of revolt, men, women and children brandish banners and cardboard signs demanding Mubarak go.
“Choose Mubarak regime or Egypt people,” read one sign in English as protesters nearby carry Mubarak’s mock coffin shoulder-high. Elsewhere on the square people chant slogans against Mubarak’s wife, Suzanne.
“We just want to be able to speak and to be heard. We want freedom and democracy,” said lawyer Allam, with Cairo and Alexandria braced for ‘marches of a million’ despite the authorities shutting roads and stopping trains.
