  1. Blogger jailed for insulting army

    EGYPT: A military tribunal convicted a blogger of insulting the army and sentenced him to three years in prison on Sunday, further raising fears that the junta is reining in freedom of expression and political reform following ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak.

    The military court issued the sentence against 26-year-old Maikel Nabil Sanad, who carried reports of abuses by the military on his blog and accused it of still being loyal to Mr Mubarak.

    The sentence was reportedly passed without the presence of his lawyers.


  2. Mubarak held on corruption charge

    EGYPT: The prosecutor general announced today that former president Hosni Mubarak has been arrested and will be detained for 15 days pending inquiries into accusations of corruption, abuse of authority and the killings of protesters during the uprising that ousted him from power.

    A separate announcement said Mr Mubarak’s two sons had been detained for questioning in Sharm el-Sheikh, where the family has lived since the president’s departure on February 11.

    His sons Gamal and his businessman brother Alaa were transferred to a Cairo prison today.
