November 22, 2011 – Cairo, Egypt - A protestors with a rubber bullet wound in his eye receives medical care at field hospitals set up around Tahrir square to deal with the increasing number of injuries. The police have been targeting eyes for days and many have become blind. Most suffer from the extreme side effects of the type of tear gas used by the police, while others have bullet wounds from real and rubber bullets. Protest organizers called today for a "million man march," thousands turned out. Egypt's military leader promised a faster transition to civilian rule, saying Tuesday that presidential elections will be held by the end of June 2012. But the major concession was immediately rejected by tens of thousands of protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square who responded with chants of "leave, leave" now. Photo credit: Trevor Snapp
