According to Daily News Egypt, Ahmed Mohsen, described as a “Brotherhood-affiliated blogger,” was arrested in the city of Fayoum three weeks ago and is currently being held at Tora Prison. He was arrested as part of a “crackdown” on members of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organization that is banned in Egypt. His detention was recently extended an additional 15 days.

An outspoken anti-torture activist, Mohsen is the moderator of the blog named “eyestillopen.” He was reportedly one of the first to expose the torture case of Mohamed Gomaa Al Dahshouri, who died shortly after allegedly having been beaten at a local police station in Fayoum.

Furthermore, Mohsen helped arrange a press conference for the victim’s family at the Bar Association in Cairo along with members of the anti-torture movement Egyptians Against Torture. He also inspired the establishment of Freedom for Fayoum, a gathering of bloggers and human rights activists in the area.

According to monem-press, a group of Egyptian and other Arab bloggers calling themselves “Arabic Bloggers Union,” have started a site called “1000 Bloggers” to agitate for his release
