Two activists taken by Military Intelligence

My thoughts are with Mostafa Nasr and Isslam Kamel, who were taken from a downtown apartment this morning by military intelligence, and are still in custody. Two Americans who were taken with them have been released and will be deported. Things could wind up a lot worse for Mostafa and Isslam, both lovely intelligent guys.

UPDATE:

Great news. Apparently Isslam and Mostafa are free! That was faster than any of us had dared hope for. 

There is also doubt about whether the two americans arrested with them will actually face deportation. Will follow the case, and hopefully speak with the whole group about their ordeal.
