Medea Benjamin Jailed in Egypt, Claims Police Broke Her Arm
Medea Benjamin of Code Pink announced on twitter last night that she had been jailed by Egyptian police as she was on her way leading a group of activists to "Hamas-lead" Gaza traveling via Cairo. This morning she tweeted that the Egyptian Police had broken her arm.
Code Pink had worked with the Muslim Brotherhood to over throw Egypt's former President Mubarak. The current government of Egypt has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization after Brotherhood leader Morsi was removed from the presidency. Perhaps that is why Benjamin was detained.
Last night her twitter feed read:
It's unclear how Benjamin is tweeting with a broken arm, or allowed to tweet at all from her Egyptian jail cell.
