A Boy Confronts Egyptian Military Police South of Cairo - A Potentially Tragic Disparity of Power and Equipment. Readjusted.

A boy with a stone (in his left hand) confronts the heavily armed Egyptian military police at a barbed wire barricade just south of Tahrir Square. The road is littered with stones thrown by both homeless youths and SCF soldiers, who would also resort to tear gas and (on many other days) bullets.

This photo was posted earlier today with very clumsy and amateurish adjustments to the brightness using a free online editor which were distinctly noticeable on enlargement but I’ve now readjusted the image to be closer to the original using no more than a !% change in brightness in any area of the image.
