Egypt arrests prominent blogger in growing crackdown

Published: 12.03.13, 14:59 / Israel News

A prominent Egyptian blogger said on Tuesday he had been arrested, the latest political activist to be detained in a widening crackdown on dissent by the army-backed government.

 

"I am now present in Basateen police station. I still don't know the accusation against me or the reason for my arrest," Ahmed Douma said on Twitter. Egyptian authorities have launched a crackdown on Islamists, killing hundreds and arresting thousands since the army ousted President Mohamed Mursi in July. (Reuters)
