Democracy in Egypt?

Rasha Azab of the independent weekly al-Fagr and the weekly’s editor-in-chief, Adel Hammouda, were told Saturday to appear before the military prosecutor.

Azab wrote about a meeting between members of Egypt’s military council and a group of activists, in which they discussed allegations of torture and abuse in post-uprising Egypt. In March, Azab was briefly detained and beaten by the military.
