The news is out: [CAIRO (Reuters) – The U.N. human rights office, the United States and several European countries on Friday criticized the arrest of three members of a prominent Egyptian rights group after a meeting with diplomats in Cairo.
In the past week, security forces detained three staff, including the director of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR), after 13 senior diplomats visited the group for a briefing on human rights on Nov. 3.
EIPR said all three have been ordered detained for 15 days on charges of joining a terrorist group and spreading false news, in what critics see as the latest escalation of an unprecedented clampdown on civil society and political dissent.
Egypt’s government has said EIPR was operating illegally.]
Seems like the Europeans are running most of Africa.
