Egyptian blogger jailed


Another bad news from Asia following the dismissal of a Chinese blogger Hao Wu four months ago after five months detained by the police in Beijing. An Egyptian blogger, Kareem Amer, detained over a month in the prison.

In a cramped jail cell in Alexandria, Egypt, sits a soft-spoken 22-year-old student. Kareem Amer was remanded to over a month in prison for allegedly “defaming the President of Egypt” and “highlighting inappropriate aspects that harm the reputation of Egypt.” Where did Amer commit these supposed felonies? On his weblog.
