How many journalists is the Sisi regime planning on arresting? All of them?

#Egyptian security forces Sunday detained Lina Attalah, editor in chief of investigative media outlet Mada Masr, the latest arrest amid a wider crackdown on dissent…
Lina Attalah was arrested outside #Cairo’s Tora prison complex during an interview with Laila Soueif, mother of jailed activist Alaa Abd El Fattah.

Soueif was briefly arrested in March along with 3 others after they staged a protest to demand release of prisoners amid #Covid19.
Alaa Abdel Fattah served a 5yr prison sentence for violating #Egypt’s protest ban. In Sept, not long after his release, he was arrested again amid a crackdown that followed small protests demanding current President Sissi step down-although he did not participate in the protests.
Alaa went on hunger strike over a month ago, and his family has been struggling to get him released in recent months amid the #coronavirus pandemic. #Egypt #Covid19
