 Cairo’s airport security has detained Abdul Galeel Sharnoubi, editor of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Arabic website, Ikhwanonline, on his return from a media trip in Yemen.

The arbitrary arrest comes amid escalating sweeps by state security to thwart and intimidate members of the group and opposition after the Muslim Brotherhood chairman, Dr. Mohamed Badie, confirmed that they would participate in the upcoming elections scheduled for late November.
 
The recent clampdown is a clear indication that despite avowals by NDP officials that there would be integrity in the elections and democracy in the way they are run, the ruling regime has no intention of loosening its oppressive grip on the country.
 
Recent measures have included the clampdown on media with the axing of over 20 satellite channels, the ousting of renowned chief editor, Ibrahim Eissa, from the independent Dostour paper, the closing down of Amr Adeeb's TV programme 'Cairo Today' and the trial of prominent journalist, Hamdy Qandeel.

Where is Mr Obama, America and western democracy? Can't they see what is happening in Egypt? They always try to poke nose in countries which are not in good terms with them while giving all support to the puppets to carryout atrocities.
