On His blog, Adel’s Friend published post reporting that Egyptian State Security Forces stormed into the house of blogger Mohamed Adel on Friday predawn, searched the house, and seized many of his books and CDs.

Ikhwanweb, the official English language web site of the Muslim Brotherhood, published statements from Adel Fahmi (Mohamed’s father):

In his statements to Ikhwanweb, Adel Fahmi reported the disappearance of his son expecting that he was arrested on fabricated charges.State security also broke into Mohamed’s house a month ago due to his participating in the Anti-Gaza Siege Campaign.

Today, a protest to the disappearance of Adel was held in front of the Genral Prosecutor Office, by some young political activist, with the attendance of the missing blogger’s father. Adel Fahmi, said he is proud of his son, and called for his immediate release. The editor of Meit blog, was arrested twice before, once on the year 2006, during a protest seeking more independency to the judiciary , and the second time was last May, while some cyber activists were calling for a general strike.

Egyptian blogspher knew the news through Jakiu mobile network, and reacted immediately. Zeinobia and 3arabawy blogs (English speaking) published post about the matter, later on many other bloggers and Facebook users wrote notes telling their friends about the disappearance of Adel.
