Al Jazeera’s Ayman Mohyeldin describes his experience while held in detention yesterday by the Egyptian military:
The following video shows Egypt’s much-feared secret police in operation on January 26, the day after the first mass protests took place. At 1 minute 15 seconds into the report a gang of plain-clothes policemen can be seen advancing towards protesters. An individual, who would appear to have been a marked man, is dragged out of the crowd and bundled away.
Some observers believe this to have been Wael Ghonim, the Google executive and prominent Egyptian activist who was reported missing the next day and who has just been released.
Meanwhile, Al Jazeera has released footage showing unarmed protesters being shot, apparently by the Egyptian army and police.
