Her screams were not drowned out by the clamor of the crazed mob of nearly 200 men around her. An endless number of hands reached toward the woman in the red shirt in an assault scene that lasted less than 15 minutes but felt more like an hour.
She was pushed by the sea of men for about a block into a side street from Tahrir Square. Many of the men were trying to break up the frenzy, but it was impossible to tell who was helping and who was assaulting. Pushed against the wall, the unknown woman's head finally disappeared. Her screams grew fainter, then stopped. Her slender tall frame had clearly given way. She apparently had passed out.
The helping hands finally splashed the attackers with bottles of water to chase them away.
The assault late Tuesday was witnessed by an Associated Press reporter who was almost overwhelmed by the crowd herself and had to be pulled to safety by men who ferried her out of the melée in an open Jeep.
Reports of assaults on women in Tahrir, the epicenter of the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak to step down last year, have been on the rise with a new round of mass protests to denounce a mixed verdict against the ousted leader and his sons in a trial last week.

Why is this “alarming?” It’s been publicly reported repeatedly at least since the so called “arab spring” began.
It’s amazing that NPR is surprised that women aren’t cherished and protected countries. In fact, given NPR’s leftist penchant for moral relativism that all cultures are equally valid, I’m surprised that NPR isn’t trumpeting it as a triumph of the Egyptian culture.
I guess these bastards shower so seldom that they are afraid of water!
Love it when liberals find out their favorite little victim and/or cultural group shows it’s true colors.
I’m surprised Liberals would pay attention to the Religion of peices abusing women. How hateful and politically incorrect! Infidels!
