Around the world Egyptians have been closely following events on the streets of Cairo and other cities throughout the country. Hassan Elmouelhi has been in Germany for a year. He is studying for a doctorate at the University of Berlin, but at the moment he says he can think of nothing else but his homeland:
“I’m afraid, I’m very happy, I’m proud of the youth in the Tahrir Square, I’m afraid of the future. What will happen?”
He has been following the demonstrations every day on the television and in the newspapers, and believes that eventually the people will triumph:
“They demand freedom and a better future for ourselves and our children. They believe in their cause and I think that they will not give up. Either die or gain freedom,” he said.
