Clashes between pro- and anti-President Hosni Mubarak groups are still going on in Cairo's Tahrir Square, with some pro-Mubarak supporters riding horses and camels.

At least 100 people have been injured, reports Al Jazeera, which was officially banned from the country by the government, but continues to post timely updates of the events.

An Al Jazeera reporter in Tahrir Square said that at least two camera crews (neither from the agency) were being chased by mobs yelling "Al Jazeera, Al Jazeera!"

At the same time, it appears that internet traffic in the country has gone back to regular levels Wednesday after an unprecedented government-imposed weeklong outage.

Protesters widely rely on social networks to exchange views and organize their actions.
