News reporters have identified and tracked down the Egyptian woman in the red hooded jacket, who heroically stepped in when she saw the Egyptian soldiers attacking the blue bra Egyptian protester.
She is Azza Suleiman. She is a 48-year old woman, and a daughter of an Egyptian general (her father has passed on). She was interviewed by Arab journalists, who passed the information on to CNN. But CNN was, at first, unable to interview her themselves because by the time they showed up, her condition had worsened. She was seen by CNN reporters to be in great pain.
The wounds that she sustained in the beating was shown (and taped by) to the Arab journalists - pretty serious looking. Azza had taken some severe hits to her head!
The next day, CNN was able to interview Azza. Check out what Azza has to say about her treatment at the hands of the Egyptian military, and what she (as a daughter of a general in the military) has to say in the second video.
