Prominent Egyptian American journalist attacked in Cairo

Journalist, Mona Eltahawy has suffered a broken wrist and arm after "12 hours with interior ministry bastards and military intelligence combined", the journalist tweeted her ordeal to her fans following the attack on the 23rd of November.
While covering the events in Tahrir square through her continuous tweeting, photgraphing and reporting for The Guradian and Toronto Star, Eltahawy was questioned by authorities about her lack of passport and then taken into the interior ministry where she suffered mental, physical and sexual assault.

The assault seems to be one of an endless amount of attacks on journalists during the ongoing protests.
