An Egyptian state security force, backed by a huge number of special forces, arrested Khaled Hamza Salam, the editor-in chief of Ikhwanweb, the Muslim Brotherhood"s official English website. Salam was arrested from a street in the eastern Cairo district of Nasr City, shortly after meeting Violette Dagherre, the chairwoman of the Paris-based Arab Commission for Human Rights. Dr. Dagherre is currently in Cairo to continue her campaign protesting military tribunals against MB leaders.

Ikhwanweb, with the help of Khaled Salam, has had a major role in scandalizing military tribunals against civilians, and was the catalyst for worldwide criticism of the case against 40 MB top members.

Khaled Salam played an essential role in communicating the case to international public opinion with his articles and reports which were published in several international periodicals.

Khaled Salam’s detention comes only a few days before the verdict which is due on Feb. 26. Analysts say it aims at silencing independent media voices from exposing the tyrannical and repressive practices of the regime.

For his part, Dr. Ahmed Abdul Magid, the CEO of Ikhwanweb in London declared that the detention is no surprise from this repressive regime. "We will strongly miss the energetic Khaled, but Ikhwanweb will maintain its message from its offices around the world.”
