Army tanks are rolling on the streets of the Egyptian city of Cairo today, and social media coverage has been largely cut off by a natiowide Internet black-out. However, Al-Jazeera is still reporting live, and an English-language feed of their coverage is available online.

Egypt has been cut off from the Internet since late Thursday, but TV networks are still broadcasting live, showing extraordinary pictures of violent unrest in Cairo and elsewhere in Egypt. On the forefront of this has been the Qatar-based news network Al-Jazeera, whose English-language programming is available online via a number of websites.

If you want to see for yourself how protesters are battling with riot police in the center of Cairo, and keep updated on the developments as the nationwide curfew kicks in at 6 p.m. EET (8 a.m. PST) and army tanks start to appear on the streets, you can check out the live feeds available on these sites:
