Egyptian Military Detains Globe & Mail Journalist In Cairo ....

I don't like the sound of this .... Here are the most recent tweets by Sonia Verma of the Globe and Mail ... Stay Tuned!!

Here are Sonia's last 5 tweets before they stopped about an hour ago:
-Another checkpoint. Now they have taken our passports. #egypt
-One of them jumped into our car. He will not give us our passports.
-We are being taken into some kind of custody.
-Military have comandeered us and our car.
-My sms to toronto is blocked. Can only tweet #egypt

UPDATE:
Sonia Verma has been released by the Egyptian military after being held for a number of hours!!

"CAIRO — The Egyptian military has started rounding up journalists, including one who writes for the Globe and Mail."

"The U.S. is condemning what it calls a “concerted campaign to intimidate international journalists” covering the protests and violence in Cairo."
The Associated Press

How bad does Harper want to be able to do this? Pretty bad I'd say.

Here's ABC's list which is probably not comprehensive moment to moment but which does get updated.
