Live from Egypt: Link and updates

Live-Feed, etc. at Common Dreams: here.
Above link: In order to follow the situation in Egypt, Common Dreams news site has a page with a live-stream from Al-Jazeera English, live-stream of Democracy Now! on-the-ground coverage, and a Twitter feed. (The Twitter feed is helpful when Twitter is over capacity.)

Twitter reports are saying that 3 Al-Jazeera journalists have been arrested. Though, I don’t hear that announced on the Al-Jazeera English channel. So, I am unclear about that.

There are reports from several news outlets saying that Pro-Mubarak supporters assaulted journalists; that the government may be rounding up journalists and destroying equipment; and that Egypt state television has been blaming the protests on foreign journalists, which is inciting violence against journalists.

Tomorrow – Friday – the protestors are planning another big gathering day, and some religious leaders have told people to go to Tahrir square.

—Important updates…

Some Ministers of Egypt, including the Minister of the Interior, are being questioned and detained, denied the right to travel, and their assets seized. Evidently, this is related to the government investigating why police did not act on Friday. I think this is the government saying that they are trying to clean up people who made mistakes to hurt protesters.

US speaks out against treatment of journalists in Egypt
Story: here, excerpt below

Washington (CNN) — A spokesman for the United States blasted forces in Egypt Thursday who have harassed, detained and beaten journalists.

“There is a concerted campaign to intimidate international journalists in Cairo and interfere with their reporting,” U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Thursday on Twitter. “We condemn such actions.”…

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attacks…

Journalists became targets Wednesday — they were beaten, bloodied, harassed and detained by men, most all in some way aligned with Mubarak.
