Four journalists covering the current strife in Egypt for Al Jazeera English have been arrested in Cairo amid claims by the current government that their reports were biased in favor for ousted President Mohamed Morsi. The four are correspondent Wayne Hay, cameraman Adil Bradlow, and producers Russ Finn and Baher Mohammed. In its response, Al Jazeera English denied the government’s claims and demanded the journalists’ release. In the wake of their arrest, the Muslim Brotherhood called for nationwide protests today (Friday) against the military-installed government.
