Prison guards under siege (follow up 2)

January 31, 2011

An eight-year-old girl in Saudi Arabia has made her own plea to Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak to step down. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn1faq0iwRw

Six Al Jazeera journalists were arrested in Cairo. The Al Jazeera correspondent there tweeted: “four soldiers entered room and took our camera. We are under military arrest.” Two of Al Jazeera’s producers are still in Cairo tweeting and filing audio reports. One of them writes: “Six members of AJE team detained, equipment confiscated. We are still out here with access.”

Al Jazeera correspondent tweets after being released by Egyptian security forces: “We’re okay, they held us for 3 hours, we’ve been released, took cameras, laptops and phones.”

According to Uk Channel 4 news, the damage in the National Museum was caused by police in order to discredit protesters. Unfortunately for the police they were caught in the act.

Connecticut National Guard Detachment 2, Company I, 185th Aviation Regiment of Groton has mobilized and will deploy to the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt. The unit operates C-23C Sherpa aircraft and has deployed three times in the last seven years in support of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The work of Brazilian cartoonist Carlos Latuff is condemned as aggressive and extremist. I can understand his anger and frustration — how can one plea for love, peace and understanding in the view of humiliation and oppression and warcrimes and outrageous lies.

  1. Good stuff! i find the cartoonist a polemicist, but he does express his point of view. The best cartoonist show the folly of both sides. He does once, in the Isreali-Palestine flag waving sketch. I’d enjoy an Escher-like cartoon is which hands are tearing down a building and hands are building one up, tied together, something like that. Be well!
