"It's also been a dramatic weekend in Egypt, where activists took control of several locked offices belonging to the former regime's secret police. The Mubarak regime used the secret police to torture opponents and monitor any resistance within the population. The activists say the documents they found contain evidence of phone-tapping, election rigging and torture. The military council, which has ruled Egypt since Mubarak stepped down, warned against releasing the documents, citing national security concerns and as demonstrations continue today outside a state security building in central Cairo, some of those involved say they have been set upon by men in plain clothes, wielding knives."
