Many journalists and independent newspapers reporters in the Nile Delta governorate of Dakahliyya have sit in before the Office of the President of Al-Mansoura University on Monday September 15, demanding to meet him to inform him about their exposure to attack by the security at the university hospital during their coverage for the hospital fire.

 

The university president refused to meet them, but when they stood in his way when he got out of the university, he ran by his car over the foot of "Al Badeel" independent newspaper journalist “Mohamed Hanafi.” Then he ordered the university guards to arrest the journalists inside the university.

 
In a telephone call with one of the detained journalists in the university, the journalist confirmed that they are still being held inside the campus until the time of writing these words.

 
Newspapers reporters in the Nile Delta governorate of Dakahliyya decided to sit in before the Office of the President of the university, in a statement which they issued earlier in which they described the sufferings and attacks they were exposed to by the security and other authorities during their work as reporters in Dakahliyya.

 
They mentioned in their statement their exposure to four attacks in the past few days, including beating one of them in a police station and the threat of another. They also said that all of them were beaten and attacked by the security forces in front of
Al-Mansoura University Hospital during the coverage of the fire that broke out in it. They revealed the fact that one of their colleagues was expelled cruelly by the hospital administration during her treatment in retaliation for her colleagues who uncovered the corruption in the hospital.
