Activists arrested in Egypt

Egyptian authorities are rounding up activists two weeks before the fifth anniversary of the January 25 uprising which led to the ouster of longtime President Hosni Mubarak.


According to lawyer Mukhtar Munair, three activists including prominent physician Taher Mokhtar were detained after police raided their apartment in downtown Cairo on Thursday. Omar Hazek, a poet, was briefly detained and banned from leaving the country, a relative said in a Facebook posting. The managing editor of a privately owned news site called Masr al-Arabia was also detained after security forces raided their office on Thursday, according to a statement from the site.


Egypt has launched an extensive crackdown on Islamists and secular activists alike since the 2013 military ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, according to a news agency. - Idrak
