CPJ Raps Egyptian Crackdown

The Committee to Protect Journalists has condemned the Government of Egypt for its round-up of 20 Al-Jazeera staffers.

They are charged with incitement, slated news coverage to favor the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been branded a terror group by the country’s military leadership, and distorting the overseas image of Egypt.

The effort to criminalize “legitimate journalistic work” is why Egypt’s image is tarnished abroad, said Sherif Mansour, CPJ’s middle east and north Africa coordinator.

CPJ calls on government officials “to drop these outrageous charges and release all journalists from jail immediately,” said Mansour.
