Free Ayman Mohyeldin

Ayman has been released by Egyptian Security forces at approx 15:00EST. This was reported by @AJEngish on Twitter. 


Ayman Mohyeldin (his blog) is a correspondent for the Al Jazeera English network. 

Reports have come in that they he has recently been arrested by the Egyptian Army and are being detained.

Over the last two weeks, it is people like him who have devoted themselves to providing all of us with the "on the ground" news and reporting out of Egypt. Not an easy task given the attitude displayed against journalists recently by the Mubarak regime. 

Sherine Tadros (her blog), another Al Jazeera English correspondent had also been detained by the Egyptian Army but thankfully, she has been released.

Below is a live Twitter feed (feed disabled as of 16:00EST) with news about Ayman from his friends and colleagues. Please, if you're a Twitter User, RT the #freeAyman and help spread the word to get this man released immediately.
