5 Al-Jazeera Journalists Just Got Arrested In Egypt

5 Al-Jazeera journalists just got arrested in Egypt. Over the weekend, Al-Jazeera had its Cairo bureau shut down, though the network has still been able to keep reports going via call-ins and other on-the-ground dispatches. The network has also had a camera at Tahrir Square, though it’s not clear how long they’ll be able to keep that going.

Between this and reports of the redeployment of police officers, this should raise worries of a hard crackdown by the Mubarak regime.
