From London's Daily Mail: Desperate times call for desperate measures. The anti-Mubarak protesters in Tahrir Square have resorted to a variety of headgear - at times comical - to protect themselves in the pitched battle against President Mubarak's thugs.

Stones are the preferred weapon in this Old Testament-style fight within the Egyptian capital and the protesters have made use of whatever lies closest to hand.

There's the man with a saucepan on his head, another with what looks like a latticed litter basket - so he can still see where the rocks are coming from - and another with a piece of styrofoam tied with a scarf to the top of his head.

In Yemen, one protester was even more inventive - he created a makeshift helmet with two baguettes, a chapatti and clingfilm.
