US says concerned with charges against Egyptian journalists

The United States on Monday expressed concern over defamation charges brought against two Egyptian journalists critical of President Mohamed Morsi and called on the government to condemn actions that stifle freedom of expression.


Public Prosecutor Talaat Ibrahim, appointed by Mursi in November, ordered the criminal trial of Magdi El Galad, editor in chief of El-Watan newspaper, and Alaa El-Ghatrify, its managing editor, state newspaper Al-Ahram reported. (Reuters)
