BBC: Egypt army cadets attack police

Tuesday, 10 March 2009
Magdi Abdelhadi, BBC Arab Affairs Analyst, wrote:

“Egyptian army cadets in plain clothes have been filmed pelting a police station with stones in a town south of the capital Cairo.

Mobile phone footage was posted by Misrdigital, a blog campaigning against police brutality and corruption.

One sequence showed the cadets trying to overturn a car, said to belong to the chief district police officer.

They were reportedly taking revenge for the alleged abuse by the police of one of their colleagues.

Newspaper editors have told the BBC they received clear orders from the army not to publish any details of the incident, which happened on Sunday evening.

The army remains an off-limit topic for an otherwise vociferous independent media in Egypt. Those who violate the taboo can risk imprisonment….

One commentator, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the incident showed the extent of chaos in Egypt, where even army cadets who are supposed to show restraint and discipline can behave like a mob. It also showed that extent of resentment all Egyptians, including members of the armed forces, feel toward the police in Egypt, he added.”

The Police station is located in 15th of Mayo, South of Cairo.

Sober’s Comment:

These are the future safe-keepers of Egypt and it’s glorious army, attacking an Egyptian police station inside Egypt!
If that’s not the highest act of treason, then what is?

And how does the government re-act? by banning the newspapers from writing about the incident! Democracy at it’s best!
