The Egypt story in Cuban media (Updated)

Yoani Sanchez continues to ask for information on events in Egypt that she can spread to others in Cuba. Meanwhile there’s today’s Juventud Rebelde, which today ran the following headline and sub-headline:

Egypt semi-paralyzed by protests

Thousands congregated for the seventh consecutive day in Tahrir Plaza in the center of Cairo. They affirm that they will continue demonstrating until they achieve the ultimate goal of forcing the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.

Update Feb. 2: In today’s Granma: another report on the street protests and a Fidel Castro commentary saying it’s all over for Mubarak.
