HeadlineDec 02, 2019

In Egypt, security forces have arrested three more journalists: Solafa Sallam, Hossam El-Sayyad, and Mohamed Salah. Their arrests come after security forces raided the Cairo offices of Egypt’s only independent media outlet, Mada Masr, and arrested its staff members, who have since been released. And in Saudi Arabia, authorities arrested at least seven journalist, bloggers and columnists last month.
