Egyptians crowed to buy bread before the start of the evening curfew in Cairo, Egypt, Monday, Jan. 31, 2011. Everyday life in Cairo has been turned upside down by the largest anti-government protests in decades in Egypt, which began last Tuesday and have surged since. Schools are closed and businesses boarded up; the usual bumper-to-bumper traffic is now little more than a trickle; and the capital's famed nightlife has been snuffed out by a 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew. For Monday, the military extended the hours, saying curfew would start at 3 p.m, and even the Internet and text message services have been blocked for days.(AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
