518E RIOT CS – Egypt – Tah17

In Egypt on November 27, 2011 by teargasid Tagged: , ,

This identifiable CS canister was found in Tahrir, photographed by @beko120

Looks like a very familiar case.

If past experiences is anything to go by (review the Tah9 case), this is produced by Federal laboratories. And one can read the labeling “518E RIOT CS”
