Protesters stopped an army officer from shooting himself. Cairo, Egypt.
Actually, you translated this incorrectly.
Thanks to Raisa, I’ve been informed that:
”..the protester went to the feet of the soldier and asked him to help protect them from Mubarak’s thugs and the soldier is crying because he said that he can’t because he was not given the orders to.”
Please translate correctly. Miscommunications can lead to false information. Like the caption under the photo.
