Egypt Shuts Down Mobile Phone Networks Again

A possible sign that Tuesday’s march could be problematic:

[Update 1:12 a.m. Tuesday in Cairo, 6:12 p.m. ET Monday] Egypt’s information ministry told CNN Tuesday that the Noor Group, an Internet service provider, has been shut down. The move essentially takes the country offline.

Minnutes earlier, Egypt’s information ministry that mobile phone networks will be shut down in Egypt during the next few hours ahead of demonstrators’ planned “march of millions.”

Mubarak apparently intends to go down fighting.
