Hundreds Of Journalists Attacked In Egypt Since Arab Spring

And the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters are behind most attacks

Hundreds of journalists have come under attack in Egypt in the two years since a popular revolution toppled the Mubarak regime, according to a new report which experts fear could mean a chill wind blew in with the Arab Spring.

Some 309 attacks, including three murders, 100 assaults and 42 cases of temporary imprisonment are documented in a study prepared by the Almasry (Egyptian) Studies and Information Center. Three journalists have been murdered since January 2011. Prior to that, the last journalist killed in Egypt was in 1992, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

"The evidence shows that most of these assaults are being committed by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, who have established a months-long pattern of intimidating and harassing the news media," CPJ spokesman Sherif Mansour said after a recent wave of attacks on reporters.

3 Obama has the solution. We will deliver 200 battle tanks and a squadron of F-16s. We'll also pay for them. I'm sure that will settle the Muslim Brotherhood down. If we didn't give them away they would buy them from the Russians and we don't wish for the Muslim Brotherhood to have Russian stuff.
