Egypt: Al Al Jazeera’s offices raided; staff arrested


Via Mediaite

Al Jazeera’s Egypt offices were raided earlier today, the news outlet reported, and security forces “stormed the building and arrested the presenter, guests and producers.” The raid reportedly occurred shortly after the network aired a statement by now-ex-president Mohammed Morsi, who declared that “we by ourselves can bypass the obstacles” and “the will of the people… cannot be canceled.”

Reuters quotes an Al Jazeera employee in Cairo as saying that his colleagues were arrested in the studio and they were “prevented from broadcasting” a pro-Morsi rally.

There is also a video making the rounds on Twitter that reportedly marks the exact moment when the studios were raided by security forces.
