Instagramming Cairo: Stuck behind the riot police

Now that I have finally got wi-fi at home, I'm back to using Instagram. Here's an iPhone pic I took back in November 2012, when I accidentally got stuck behind the riot police during the clashes on Qasr Al Aini. 
Riot police, nov. 2012
The vans you see in the background have just charged towards the protesters, and the riot police behind the vans are the ones that were too lazy to run alongside them. They are just hanging out waiting for them to retreat so they can then fend off another batch of stones and molotovs raining down on them. They kept this up for a fair few days. Good times.
