Interesting to see that they've had warnings since April and even warned on the 10th of a call to riot / attack via social media. Considering this is what has been released, I'd LOVE to know what hasn't.
And people keep pushing the Cairo riots were spawned by the Youtube video when that's not exactly the case.
