February 2, 2011, Cairo, Egypt: Clashes between pro-Mubarak supporters, many of whom were thought to be police in civilian clothes, and pro-democracy protesters on Tahrir square. Amid clashes, the pro-Mubarak supporters unleashed a cavalry charge, including one man on a camel. The charge turned out to be a kamikaze act, with riders almost lynched by Tahrir pro-democracy protesters.///Pro and anti-Mubarak supporters clash in Tahrir square; a man riding a camel knocks over a photographer.
