To hear our producer's account of the fighter jets, listen below, or click here to find all of our audio:

3 pm: Al Jazeera's producer in Egypt says reports are circulating that the country's interior minister has been arrested by the army. Hear his report here:

2:30 pm: To protect Al Jazeera's staff on the ground, we're not naming them or identifying their specific locations. Listen to our producer talk about having to relocate the Al Jazeera office here:

2 pm: 'Even President Obama Is Watching Al Jazeera'. Business Insider, citing a post from The Daily Beast, reports Al Jazeera's coverage of the situation in Egypt is being followed at the White House:

"Now, huddled in the big office of their boss—one of the administration policy-makers trying to calibrate the US response to the unfolding drama—the advisers watched Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s first statement. Two television sets were running, one showing CNN and the other a satellite feed from Al Jazeera." 

1:35 pm: For more on the closure of the bureau in Cairo, Al Jazeera's producer in the Egyptian capital reports:

Just spoke with staffer at the Cairo bureau. While our correspondent and other staff were out, security forces (not army) entered the office and demanded filming permits and press IDs. They were told that all the recently arrived staff hadn't had time to get their paperwork in order and so didn't have any. They ordered our bureau staff to take down the camera doing live shots from the balcony and threatened to take it if we didn't. So now we're just showing "latest pictures".

12:47 pm: Death toll rises. Al Jazeera reports 150 protesters killed since Friday in Egypt's demonstrations.

11:48 am: Turkey announces it is sending two Turkish Airlines planes to Egypt on Sunday to evacuate Turkish citizens, the state-run Anatolian news agency quotes embassy officials in Cairo as saying.

11:40 am: Al Jazeera issues a statement denouncing the closure of its bureau in Cairo.

"The Al Jazeera Network strongly denounces and condemns the closure of its bureau in Cairo by the Egyptian government.  The Network received notification from the Egyptian authorities this morning.

Al Jazeera has received widespread global acclaim for their coverage on the ground across the length and breadth of Egypt.

An Al Jazeera spokesman said that they would continue their strong coverage regardless:

"Al Jazeera sees this as an act designed to stifle and repress the freedom of reporting by the network and its journalists.   In this time of deep turmoil and unrest in Egyptian society it is imperative that voices from all sides be heard the closing of our bureau by the Egyptian government is aimed at censoring and silencing the voices of the Egyptian people. 

"Al Jazeera assures its audiences in Egypt and across the world that it will continue its in-depth and comprehensive reporting on the events unfolding in Egypt.  Al Jazeera journalists have brought unparalleled reporting from the ground from across Egypt in the face of great danger and extraordinary circumstances.  Al Jazeera Network is appalled at this latest attack by the Egyptian regime to strike at its freedom to report independently on the unprecedented events in Egypt."

11:27 am: Al Jazeera's Evan Hill, tweeting from Cairo, says: Several aspects of the apparent government shutdown of AJ remain unclear. We're all waiting now. 

10:55 am: 
Al Jazeera's correspondent Dan Nolan and web producer Evan Hill say Egyptian state television report that Egyptian authorities have ordered the Al Jazeera Arabic offices in Cairo closed and have suspended its correspondents' accreditations.

"The team watched the announcement go out live on Nile TV. They said ... broadcasting license and press credentials are being revoked," Hill reported from Cairo.

10 am:
Sunday is the start of the work week in Egypt, but as Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan reports, things in Cairo are "a long way from business as usual".

He says authorities are placing new military roadblocks on Galaa street in Cairo, blocking traffic from going through to the Corniche that runs along the Nile river. "Still a very tense scene with military everywhere," he says.

Later, he reports that witnesses have told Al Jazeera that the military has begun moving in on the streets of the Red Sea resort city of Sharm El Sheikh to protect tourist areas.

"What makes this so significant is that this is in the Sinai Peninsula. Under the terms of the Camp David accord, a peace treaty signed between Israel and Egypt, there was to be complete restrictions on any military ever entering the Sinai. It was always that the security in the Sinai could only ever be handled by police forces. This would indicate that police are no longer doing their job in the Sinai peninsula."

9:27 am: Making the rounds on the social networking site Facebook is an album compiled by user Leil-Zahra Mortada, who is collecting photos of women in the Egypt protests.

She calls it a "homage to all those women out there fighting, and whose voices and faces are hidden from the public eye!"

8:18 am: Salma ElTarzi, a protestor in Cairo, tells Al Jazeera by telephone that she and other demonstraters have been subject to "brutal violence" from police.

"We've been seeing atrocities and what's more important is the withdrawal of police. On the 28th midday, they were brutally bombing us with tear gas, with live bullets. My brother was shot with a shotgun. There was blood everywhere. Suddenly, after all this violence, police started retreating for no apparent reason."

Despite the violence, ElTarzi said she will be back on the streets today.

"We will be back on the streets everyday until he (Mubarak) leaves and until we choose who is going to follow."

7:30 am: The social networking site Twitter is abuzz with reaction to a comedic spoof of the Egypt crisis on the US sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL). 

SNL comedian Fred Armisen impersonates Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's president, saying:

"[My people] love me. They are upset because the internet is down.

"I'm willing to take the following steps to show I'm willing to change. Number 1: I'm firing my cabinet. Number 2, I'm hiring a new cabinet, made up of members of my fired cabinet."

Twitter user FR_INC‎ writes: "Egypt still too much of an open wound to be satirizing with a Mubarak impersonator on SNL, no?"

But user LizzieCady‎ disagrees, tweeting: "No, making fun of #Mubarak on SNL was not "too soon"--Americans need to know what an idiot he is."

7:09 am: Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros, reporting from just outside the port city of Suez, says protests are expected to continue there today.

"The interesting thing will be the dynamic between the military and the civilians. What we were witnessing on Saturday was a cordial atmosphere between the military and the people - the people were bringing them tea and eating and drinking with them inside their tanks.

"But as the curfew was being imposed it became a lot more tense. We could see military personnel arresting some of the protesters. It really shows the delicate situation the military is in here."

6:18 am: Al Jazeera's Jane Dutton, reporting from Cairo, said the streets seemed safe, and relatively empty early in the morning.

"I was able to see a few hundred people or so in the main square, Tahrir Square. The police have just disappeared. Any security at this stage is in the hands of the army. Vigilantes have been taking to the streets to prevent looting - we've been hearing stories of widespread looting across many cities. But at the moment, very very quiet here in Cairo."

5:00 am: Al Jazeera's correspondents in the Americas report from Egypt solidarity protests in Toronto, Canada Washington, DC Los Angeles, California and at the United Nations in New York. Demonstrations also took place in the US city of Chicago, Illinois.

3:10am Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports that the United States will have to review its aid policy towards Egypt following the violent protests across the country. Culhane says that there is a sense of excitement among Egyptians in the US who never expected to see the Mubarak government so close to collapse.

3:08am Former Minister Mustafa Al Gindi, a former member of Egypt's parliament, from the opposition Wafd political party tells Al Jazeera that Egyptians want democracy and this is the only plausible way forward for the country.

2:24am
Cairo residents say that the military is guarding only certain areas of the city and seen as unable to provide protection for citizens. The army's role is seen as critical.

1:30am Tourists have been warned by many governments to stay away from Egypt, but travelers are not yet being evacuated. Meanwhile, protesters continue to defy the overnight curfew in several Egyptian cities. 

1:22am Ayman Mohyeldin tweets: "shift of mood from celebratory 2 tense as night fell & absence of security on streets created problem 4 law & order".

12:45am Tunisia remains unstable, Egypt is on the brink, and pro-Western Arab countries such as Jordan and Yemen remain vulnerable to escalating anti-government protests over high unemployment, rising prices and political repression. View our interactive slideshow from demonstrations across the region -- The Domino effect: Pan-Arab unrest.

12:34am Shadi Hamid of the Brookings Doha Center tells Al Jazeera that the outlook is poor for stock markets in the Middle East and elsewhere, as Egypt uncertainty continues. He mentions an over 10 per cent drop in Egypt's index on Thursday and the largest one-day decline in the NYSE for the past six months on Friday.

12:32am Reports say that 19 Egyptian businessmen on private jets arrived in Dubai after leaving Cairo's airport.
