Al Aribya: Ten Ministers Resign from Morsi's Government?
Military Helicopters Seem to Signal Support for the Protesters

Before those stories, here is live video of the second night of gigantic demonstrations. Again, this is massive. The crowds are now shooting off fireworks.

Via Hot Air, ten ministers have resigned. Al Aribya doesn't include the "?." They report it as a fact. But I don't know Al Aribya from Al Bundy so I'm putting the question mark on it.

Previously, five ministers were reported to be considering resignation.

Given the helicopters signalling support of the protesters, it seems kind of believable, though.

Yesterday, Egyptian military helicopters flew over the crowd while flying Egyptian flags from their bellies (video). The crowd seemed to take this as a show of support -- I'm not sure if you can take it any other way. As in Turkey, the display of the national flag is intended as a repudiation of the ruling regime and its Islamist/caliphate pretensions.

I suppose the flags could mean something neutral like "We're all Egyptians, let's not do anything rash," but it seems to me they're more saying "We hear you and we're taking care of this shortly."

This ship is sinking.

More good video from the enormous protests -- again, they're sort of cute about refusing to say which day this is from. I guess it's from Sunday night.

I saw a tweet from a BBC reporter s
Lots of pictures here.

But that's a feature, not a bug, isn't it?

Update: I wasn't certain if the helicopter flyover took place yesterday or today; weft-cut loop informs me it was yesterday.
