2:01am  Egyptian state television claims that some anti-Mubarak protesters are asking to be able to pass the barricades and leave Tahrir Square, and that that the Egyptian army has indicated that it's ready to help protesters leave the square. 

But Al Jazeera Arabic contacted some protesters, who have have denied the reports carried on Egyptian television. 

1:26am Aida Seif El Dowla, founder of the El Nadim Center tells Al Jazeera how a sister organization, the Hisham Mubarak Law Center, a prominent legal aid group providing help to anti-government protesters , was raided on Thursday, with its staff of five, along with 25 volunteers, being detained.

Since early in the morning, the area ... was full of thugs, who randomly rounded up people from the streets and them people in microbuses and just took them away, God knows where. And then we heard that the army had surrounded the Hisham Mubarak Law Centre, and then we heard that thugs were surrounding the Hisham Mubarak Law Centre, and they're not allowing people to enter or to leave the building. And then we heard that the army - the military police - they went up into the centre, broke into it, took the equpment, took the computers, took some of the files, removed some of the sim cards from the mobile phones ...

When asked if she knew where her colleagues were being kept, al Dowla said,

We don't know. We don't know. The fact that they have been taken by the military police? means that probably being kept in some military place, not the normal police stations, depending on where they have been detained from, and so we have no access to those people, we have no knowledge of whether or not they are safe. … we have absolutely no idea where they are.

She said among those detained are representatives of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, along with several bloggers.
