The Aftermath

"Secretary General Kofi Anan has condemned as unjustified the killing by Egyptian soldiers of between 10 and 20 Sudanese refugees in a park in wealthy Cairo neighbourhood." CNN

"The UN refugee agency has expressed "shock" after up to 20 Sudanese migrants died during an operation by Egyptian police to break up their camp.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, said there was no justification for the violence." BBC News

"The high loss of life suggests the police acted with extreme brutality", said Joe Stork, deputy director of Human Rights Watch'?s Middle East division. "A police force acting responsibly would not have allowed such a tragedy to occur." Human Rights Watch

"Given Egypt's terrible record of police brutality, an independent investigation is absolutely necessary to assess responsibility and punish those responsible." Joe Stork, Deputy director of Human Rights Watch

This is the aftermath of the way things are tackled in Egypt. Such a terrible raid should have never been the way to force the Sudanese refugees out of the park. Well, now look at what we gained out of this...
1- Innocent miserable people lost their lives, high numbers injured.
2- Police soldiers injured in a battle they should not have been involved in.
3-The world criticizing us (and they have every right to do).

I dont think this is the aftermath of what happen last Friday. This is the aftermath of the way Egyptian police force deals with serious matters. And more, it is the aftermath of the way everything goes on the political realm in Egypt. It is as simple as "you reap what you sow".
