The 27 year-old Egyptian Muslim Brother journalist and blogger, Abd al-Monem Mahmoud, who is running the “I am Ikhwan [1]” blog has been arrested today by the Egyptian police.

“I believe his arrest is mainly an attempt to silence the campaign against sending ikhwan leadership to military tribunal, Monem was coordinating the campaign which used blogs as it's main tool ” said Alaa Abd El Fattah in his e-mail alert.
