Thousands of protesters stormed the Egyptian security office over the weekend, as police forces hurried out the door with bags of shredded paper.But not all of the documents were shredded. Photos of recovered documents are being posted at Facebook. Several comments refer to this document as the most dangerous — unfortunately we don’t have a translation.

These documents may contain evidence linking Mubarak’s administration to crimes including torture, along with possible evidence of US-led torture in Egypt.

Among the documents, protesters found footage of an Egyptian businessman having intimate relations with a member of a Middle Eastern royal family, according to the WSJ.

Another file claims Egypt’s Grand Mufti had several wives.

Former CIA analyst Bruce Riedel tells the WSJ this leak puts informants and sources at risk.
