From Calcutta to Cairo

Issue section: 

During a weekend of anti-war protests in Cairo to coincide with 15 February's international day of action demonstrators were warned of more mass arrests. Riot police surrounded a rally to prevent supporters joining from the streets. They told young activists that they would be dragged to jail.

One of the protesters who was seized the week before has been released. Ibrahim al-Sahary, a journalist, was freed from Tura Prison on the Monday after the demonstration, leaving 11 activists still in jail.
