Alleged'poopetrator' at large at Yale University

At least four times in the past
month, an unknown individual
or group of people has soiled
students' laundry in dryers with
urine and feces, The Yale Daily
News reported Monday.
Early Friday morning, stu-
dentswere alertedby e-mailthat
a laundry line of soiled clothing
- later proved to be stained by
chocolate - was strung outside
the Saybrook residence hall.
Yale security officials say
they're increasing security in
laundary rooms; but students
tell the Daily News that it's
unclear if changes have been
made at other residence halls.
Yale police and. administra-
tors are investigating the issue
and reviewing laundry-room

The Daily News reports that
rumors have come to light on
campus that suggest that a
prank group may be responsible
for the soiling.
In incidents like this, hall
directors at Yale, known as
masters, are finding it difficult
to protect the safety of stu-
dents while still allowing them
to have freedom from constant
surveillance, according to the
Daily News.

Turmoil leaves scars on Cairo *

Vivacious city
now has curfew,
unfriendly spirit
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's capital
has long been proud of its nick-
name, "Mother of the World"
- a metropolis of 18 million
throbbing with the vitality and
fun of other great cities, even if
at times it seemed unmanage-
able and chaotic.
But Cairo's spirit has been
deeply scarred by 32 months of
turmoil and bloodshed from two
"revolutions," constant protests
and crackdowns, and a military
Residents talk of an unfa-
miliar edginess. People are
more suspicious of each other,
whether because of increased
crime or constant media warn-
ings of conspiracies and terror-
Families are split by bitter
ideological differences. Fights'

are sparked by a word or a ges-
ture seen as supporting either
the military or the Islamists
who were ousted from power by
the armed forces.
The mood goes beyond ideol-
ogy. With police battered by the
upheaval and rarely enforcing
regulations, many people flout
laws with no thought of the
consequences - whether it's
the cafes that take over side-
walks or thugs who seize plots
of land.
A curfew in place for nearly
two months has put a damper
on Cairo's nightlife. It has been
eased to start at midnight, but
that was usually the hour when
streets and parties were just
getting lively.
Political violence has killed
more than 2,000 people in the
city and wounded many oth-
ers, starting with the Jan. 25,
2011, revolution that ousted
autocrat Hosni Mubarak. That
was followed by demonstra-
tions against the military rulers

who replaced Mubarak, the pro-
tests during President Moham-
med Morsi's year in office,
and the June 30 "revolution"
that prompted the July 3 coup
against the president.
"Political differences have
made some people lose their
humanity," said Shaiymaa
Awad, a 32-year-old Morsi sup-
Awad said she was in a
bus recently that drove past
Rabaah el-Adawiya, the mosque
where hundreds of Islamists
were killed in August when
police cracked down on a sit-in
demanding Morsi's reinstate-
When she broke down crying,
"other passengers looked sur-
prised, but none of them under-
stood why," Awad said.
The Rabaah mosque is not the
only city landmark now more
famous for one of the violent
incidents of the past 21/2 years.
Others include:
- Ajistoric bridge over the
Nile, once a favored romantic
spot for couples, that was the
site of a battle between police
and anti-Mubarak protesters.
- The towering Nile-side
state TV headquarters nick-
named "Maspero," now known
for the army's killing of more
than 25 Christian protesters.
- Moqattam, once simply
the rocky plateau overlooking
the city where couples went to
steal kisses, now- remembered
for a bloody street fight between
Muslim Brotherhood support-
ers and opponents.
New neighborhoods joined
the list Sunday, when Morsi
supporters and police clashed,
killing at least 40 people. With
more streets strewn with debris
and blackened by fires, Cairenes
fear the city is turning into a
Baghdad or a Beirut at their
most violent.
"Blood is everywhere," said
Belal Fadl, a popular satirical
columnist and scriptwriter,
"It is good that life goes on
after every episode of blood-
shed, but it is terrible from a
human perspective," he said,
adding that people now react to
violence "as if they are watching
it on asilver screen."
