This is unacceptable and must stop at once.”Journalists have repeatedly been the targets of violence in a witch-hunt by President Hosni Mubarak’s supporters since 2 February. The list of journalists who have been roughed up, arrested, beaten or assaulted by mobs keeps getting longer. Reporters Without Borders has already expressed its concern about the dangerous climate.

Technology company Continental is introducing two additional EM-Master E4/L4 radial tyre sizes to the market. “This for now completes our range of radial tyres for use on wheel loaders and dump trucks in particular for construction work and mining,” says Christian Luther, Product Line Manager Earthmoving at Continental Commercial Specialty Tires (CST). “We are also collaborating intensively with our customers to further expand our portfolio to meet their needs and requirements.”The EM-Master is part of the ContiEarth portfolio, which was developed specifically for the construction sector. The tyre is ideally suited for articulated dump trucks (ADT), loaders and dozers and is available in two versions: The EM-Master E3/L3 has a normal tread depth and wide spacing between the blocks. This makes it the best tyre on soft ground. In comparison to the E3/L3, the EM-Master E4/L4 is ideally suited for hard and stony ground thanks to a greater block size with less spacing between the blocks and a deeper tread depth.The RDT-Master is also part of the ContiEarth series and was developed for rigid dump trucks (RDT). Thanks to its special deep tread design, the tyre offers high resilience, cut resistance and self-cleaning properties.The DumperMaster rounds out the radial tyre product range. The tyre has an all-steel radial carcass which ensures high load capacity with low heat build-up. This makes it ideally suited for transporting ore onto the conveyor belt or directly from mines to the surface on dump trucks. In addition, the tyre is well-suited for tunnel construction.
