I've just listened to the mp3 of a telephone call from Cairo from earlier tonight and it seems that the targets for looting and violence seem to be restricted to the police and political targets like the NDP headquarters which was set on fire.  Vodafone seems to have been targetted because of links to the regime - for instance for cuttimg off mobile phones.  Other American shops like MacDonalds haven't been attacked.

Latest reports are that the Internet and phones are now back on in Cairo so hopefully we may get more news tomorrow.
