THE DEEP STATE STRIKES BACK:

Al Jazeera journalists arrested in Egypt (Al Jazeera,30 Dec 2013)

Egypt's security forces have arrested four Al Jazeera journalists in Cairo.

Correspondent Peter Greste, producers Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed as well as cameraman Mohamed Fawzy are being held in custody after arrested by security forces on Sunday evening.

Greste is a veteran journalist who previously worked for Reuters, CNN and the BBC over the past two decades.

Human rights groups say conditions for journalists in Egypt have become difficult since former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was removed in a coup on July 3, 2013.
