Security forces have arrested the brother of journalist Mohamed Al-Garhy after
breaking into the family house and not finding him.
Mohamed has said that his brother Yasser is not politically active.
Mohamed al-Garhy is an Egyptian journalist and founder of the 25 January
Hospital which was built after the uprising. The hospital runs on donations to
treat those who are unable to pay for their medical care for free. No official
authority has issued statements or information on Yasser’s arrest.
Al-Garhy wrote on Facebook that his brother has nothing to do with politics. His
family do not know where he is being held.
