A small band of protesters staged a protest opposite the Egyptian embassy. They were angry at the visit of the son of the current Egyptian leader, and the way the police/military are dealing with protesters in their country. London, UK. 26/01/2011

This afternoon a small band of protesters staged a protest opposite the Egyptian embassy. They were angry at the visit of the son of the current Egyptian leader, and the way their police/military are dealing with protesters in their country. They are also angry at the lack of information and media coming out of Egypt. Some claim that the Egyptian authorities have deliberately closed the 'airways' preventing social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter from operating.

There was a small police presence and the police ordered that the protesters take down several banners that were attached to railing near the embassy.

In a sinister move,while the protest took place, an official inside the embassy was seen at a window filming the protesters.

There were no arrests.
