Egypt: Columnists protest censorship

Three columnists for the Egyptian independent daily Al-Tahrir will not be publishing their regular columns in protest at what they view as censorship by the current military rulers. Belal Fadl, Omer Taher, and Nagla Bedir have been openly critical of policies made by the transition government, and are protesting the decision of authorities to stop the publication of a piece critical of Egypt’s intelligence service last week.
