How to keep up with events in Egypt in real time without getting swamped

If you want to keep up with events in Egypt as they unfold but not be overwhelmed, here’s our carefully selected list of the best sources.

Live-blog: The Guardian’s, which updates automatically without your needing to refresh the browser.

Live TV feed from Tahrir Square: Reuters‘, which you can shrink down to a small window on your desktop.

TV feed with commentary: Al-Jazeera English, which isn’t exclusively focused on Egypt but is good when it is.
