Egypt rebukes foreign press for "biased" coverage

“Egypt is feeling severe bitterness towards some Western media coverage that is biased to the Muslim Brotherhood and ignores shedding light on violent and terror acts that are perpetrated by this group in the form of intimidation operations and terrorizing citizens,” said the unsigned statement…

Several foreign journalists reported facing harassment and attacks on Saturday. A reporter for The Wall Street Journal and Alastair Beach, a journalist for Britain’s The Independent, were both grabbed and lightly beaten by mobs of anti-Morsi demonstrators outside the beseiged mosque on Saturday…

The mob turned the two reporters over to nearby soldiers, who kept them in protective custody before releasing them away from the scene about an hour later.

Patrick Kingsley, a correspondent for The Guardian, also reported over Twitter that he was “citizen arrested” by a group of angry youth who stole his laptop and mobile phone before turning him over to police.
