Egyptian Army confiscate Journalists cameras to hide their crimes
Video evidence of many people being brutally beaten are not available because the Army -- right after that raid -- entered the offices of most media outlets surrounding the square and confiscated equipment," says Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous, reporting from Cairo.
Kouddous says the military confiscated two of his cameras, and he also saw them take cameras from Al Jazeera reporters. "This was a clampdown on information, on trying to prevent these kinds of pictures from emerging."
The police attacks have overshadowed the first parliamentary elections since former president Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February.
