The journalist that I had “h/t’d” (hat tip / credited) on my previous post have been arrested by the Egyptian Army. Al Jazeera have released that video and also showed a video where a protester got shot with what appears to be green laser sight scope appearing on the screen. It does make one pause and think about the journalist and protesters risking their lives there. Not sure why Mubarak’s man decide to arrest the journalist now. If they blame him for the release of the video then they could not be more wrong. Because the video was already flooding tweeter at that time with links to youtube posted by different people. This attempt to control the information is pointless when there are thousands of people providing eye witness accounts and millions witnessing the atrocities.
Here is the latest video from Al Jazeera. At the end is part of the video I have linked to earlier.
There have been reports of sniper fire in previous day that have killed several protester. It came at a day when Mubarak’s man started attacking protester with stones and petrol bomb or molotov cocktail causing fight to broke out. Actually seeing it on video give us a very tiny bit feel of what the protester must actually be going through right there.
In the last few days, Al Jazeera have started concealing their reporters name when talking to them saying it is for their safety. Mubarak’s man have been hunting down journalist especially those from Al Jazeera.
Please help raise awareness about the arrest of journalist Ayman Mohyeldin by retweeting any post at #Jan25 with the hashtag #freeAyman. So that it will show up in the trending list of Tweeter and catch more people’s attention.
