Around 9pm on the second anniversary of the Egyptian uprising, a group of men used flamethrowers, knives, and clubs to protect a group of women, including prominent public figure Gameela Ismail, from a mob assault on the edge of Tahrir Square. The men also rescued at least four other women from the mob, one of whom had been stripped naked. The women rescued from the mob were part of the Egyptian Women for Change group and had just led a march into the square.
Among the men protecting the women were members of the Dostour Party and the 'Black Bloc,' who jumped the fence with knives and clubs to come to the women's aid.
