Another ‘Day of Rage’ as Protests Erupt Across Region

Untold Hundreds of Thousands Protest Across Muslim World

The pro-democracy protests in the Muslim World often escalate on Fridays, as the faithful gather for prayers on Friday morning and then, already organized, take to the streets for protests the rest of the day. Today was no different, and indeed likely rivals the peak of the Egypt Revolution for the biggest number of protesters region-wide.

Of course, at its peak we saw “million man” marches in Egypt. So just how big were today’s marches? The exact figures are tough to measure, especially with a massive protests/clashes across Libya, but a look at the region suggests that they are broader, if not in sheer size, then surely in territory covered.
