0610 GMT: It was a gentler day for headlines on Wednesday in Egypt. There was no advance in talks between the opposition and the regime, so most of the political news was actually posturing by the Government, from Vice President Suleiman's warning of a coup if the situation was not resolved to Foreign Minister Aboul Gheit's criticism of the US Government for its intervention in the crisis. The visibility of protest extended beyond Tahrir Square in Cairo, with continued demonstrations in front of Government buildings and an escalation in labour strikes, but there was no showdown in locations such as the State TV complex.

That did not mean, however, that there was no news. It simply was occurring away from cameras. In the New Valley in southeast Egypt, the battle in al-Wala al-Jadid between police and protesters claimed at least four lives and injured at least 100. And The Guardian reports from witness testimony:

The Egyptian military has secretly detained hundreds and possibly thousands of suspected government opponents since mass protests against President Hosni Mubarak began, and at least some of these detainees have been tortured.
