(WOUB) - WOUB has CNN on in the lobby of the Radio and Television building so students and faculty will be able to watch the continuing developments in Egypt.

Fires and looting have broken out in Egypt's capital, following clashes in central Cairo between anti-government protesters and regime backers.

Security officials say a fire has been raging in a major supermarket in a suburb, and looters were ravaging the building. Another building in central Cairo burned, next to a 5-star hotel tower overlooking the Nile River.

Heavy gunfire has been heard again today in the clashes between regime supporters and anti-government protesters, and people have been seen carrying away at least one person.

Egypt's military today has been rounding up journalists, after they came under attack from supporters of President Hosni Mubarak.

The U.S. State Department is denouncing what it calls a "concerted campaign to intimidate" foreign journalists there.
