      what a sad sight this is. I hope museum is safe. But if this building falls, then surely it may destroy the museum and its priceless artifacts.

      This is sad indeed because this fire burned many important documents that could've been used to further prove the corruption of the old regime. There was definitely collusion in burning this building and in leaving it to burn for 36 hours with sending any fire brigades to put it out and they were standing 300 meters away.

      The burning of the NDP building in Cairo is more of a sign of democracy, rather than repression which the NDP has been known for, for decades. Should this photo really be described 'sad'?
