Egyptian blogger gets four years' prison for 'insult'

Top stories


Abdel Kareem Soliman, aka Kareen Amer, has been sentenced to four years’ prison for insulting various things bloggers are prone to insult. (Bite me, Tony Blair!) Soliman had some choice words about Islam, the president of Egypt, and called his alma mater al-Azhar “the university of terrorism”. He was expelled last year and his school pushed for him to be arrested for being mouthy. Visit Free Kareem to get in on doing something to support his human right to speak his mind and be free. [GT]
