As many as 300 people may have died in anti-government unrest in Egypt according to unofficial reports, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said Tuesday.

...International Solidarity Movement calls on companies to stop providing equipment that “Israel misuses to kill and maim unarmed protesters.”
