Security Forces Raid Offices of Egypt’s Last Independent Media Outlet

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – Egyptian security forces raided the office of Egypt’s last independent media outlet, Mada Masr, over the weekend, arresting editor in chief Lina Attalah, managing editor Mohamed Hamama and reporter Rana Mamdouh.

The raid of the Cairo office came one day after security forces also arrested Mada Masr’s senior editor, Shady Zalat, at his home. All journalists have been released.

The attack on the independent outlet came just a week after Mada Masr published a report headlined, “President’s eldest son, Mahmoud al-Sisi, sidelined from powerful intelligence position to diplomatic mission in Russia.”
