Over the past two weeks, Al Jazeera has carried 24/7 breaking news coverage of the protests in Egypt. Live video of the protests from Tahrir Square, streaming from and, have driven a 2500% traffic increase to their website. The majority of this traffic has come from the United States, as U.S. viewers can't access Al Jazeera's broadcast on television.

This week, Al Jazeera released their Al Jazeera spotlight site where you can watch breaking news clips, scan headline news and dive into the breadth of their web content -- all on the big screen.

For the latest coverage on the protests in Egypt you can also visit Al Jazeera's YouTube channels in both Arabic and English for premium coverage and CitizenTube for on-the-ground citizen reports.
