|Thursday, March 15,2007 00:00|
Egyptian security forces arrested Mohamed Adel, Ikhwanweb correspondent and blogger of Maiet while covering Tahrir Square demonstration today. Security forces also arrested 32 other demonstrators. Adel was last heard of when he was taken to the police car. Mohamed Taher, blogger of the weblog Mowaten, was also arrested
Ikhwanweb condemns the arrest of its correspondent and demand release all media personnel arrested by the Egyptian regime. Government has been targeting opposition media specifically so as not to expose its violations to human rights to the world.
It is worth mentioning that this is the second time in which the regime arrests a correspondent of Ikhwanweb, the Muslim Brotherhood’s official English website, since it was launched, a year ago.
