WOMEN ARRESTED FOR PHOTOGRAPHING POLICE BRUTALITY(EGYPT)


Egyptian police have been randomly and systematically arresting people in and around downtown Cairo’s Qasr el-Aini street, where clashes broke out Saturday only a few hundred meters from Tahrir Square. One of those arrested was Sarah Abdallah, a resident of Qasr el-Aini street who was spotted by police taking pictures from her balcony.
A second woman, Amira al-Asmar , was also arrested for also taking photographs of police violence from her home.
Police broke into Abdallah’s home and illegally arrested her without proper legal permission. Abdallah was detained over night at a nearby police station and police said she will be transported to the prosecutor’s office the morning after. The Egyptian Revolutionist Women Union called out on people to support Abdallah and demanded she be released immediately.
