Egyptian State TV Reports First Journalist Dead in Egypt

Euronews is reporting that an Egyptian journalist has died of wounds sustained during last week’s protests.  It’s not up their website yet: http://www.euronews.net/news/mid-east/, but we just saw it ourselves on local TV.

Couple this with stories we’ve heard in the past few hours of foreigners being arrested just for being outside and it appears that the situation, at least for reporters, is not getting any better.  It seems hard to deny that these crackdowns on journalists and foreigners are both planned and coordinated.

    Tommy,

    Great work. I just finished reading the blog from start to finish. Your cultural insights in the early entries are both well-written and enlightening. Sounds from the later entries that you were able to spend a bit of time in the crucible. Nice work bringing Ignatius to Cairo. Stay safe and drop me a line if you are back in DC. I would like to get together for lunch.

    Pax,
    Harry

      Glad to hear you’ve enjoyed it, Mr. Risetto, and thanks for the kind reviews. I don’t think I’ll be back in the states until may/june, but I’ll definitely give you a call then. Lunch would be great.

      Hope all is well with you and yours, both at home and at school.

      Talk to you soon,

      Tom
