Egypt: Blogger Arrested

“Egyptian blogger Omar el Sharqawi was detained last tuesday by Mubarak's police, he managed to make a phone call and inform his friends that he was being held in Talkha police station in Mansoura. yet when human rights lawyers inquired about him the Talkha sherif denied Omar was ever arrested.
“So they kidnapped Omar and would not reveal his whereabouts nor even admit he is in custody, needless to say the arrest is illegal, he was probably never charged with anything and is now in some dark state security dungeon, Omar needs your support,” writes Egyptian blogger Alaa Abdel Fattah.
