Here is a recent article on an event in Egypt from the New York Times:
This article deals with the tension between Egypt and Israel after the Israeli embassy was attacked by demonstrators and extremely damaged. The new Egyptian government, after Mubarak, is struggling to set up the government and this heightened tension with Isreal after the attack has not eased this transition. The government has enacted an "emergency law" which allows them to detain protestors indefinitely and demonstrators for a period of time to try to quell this situations that are arising in the "new Egypt." The problem is that this was a "law" that the new military leaders had promised to do away with after 30 years of use under Mubarak but went ahead and started using it after the Israeli Embassy riot. The safety of the other embassies and their staffs have been questioned after this incident.
