“I was in Tahrir Square during the 25 January revolution and I saw a lot of injured people, but this time I think there are more serious injuries,” says Dr Omar Qassar who is working on makeshift premises.
“I’ve seen two people hit by shotgun pellets in their chest and abdomen. One died before he got to hospital.”
“The tear gas is weird,” he adds. “In January it was much lighter. This stuff is very strong, just smelling it I get dizzy. We’ve seen a few cases of convulsions.”
Doctors have collected samples of the canisters, which bear the name of a US manufacturer, and sent them to laboratories for analysis.
And of course it’s the presidential candidate who wants to end the U.S. subsidies for foreign governments who’s crazy.
