Breaking: Egyptian Blogger Sandmonkey Arrested & Later Released

This is horrible news… Famous Egyptian blogger and friend Sandmonkey may have been arrested by the Mubarak regime.
Roger Simon reported:

“Be forewarned: The writer of this blog is an extremely cynical, snarky, pro-US, secular, libertarian, disgruntled. sandmonkey.”

The man who wrote those words — the witty and courageous Egyptian blogger “Sandmonkey” — is currently in hiding in his native city of Cairo, moving from one friend’s apartment to another, as supporters of Hosni Mubarak pursue him and other democracy demonstrators.

UPDATE: Sandmonkey was released according to an update by Roger Simon.

The Egyptian Army started rounding up and arresting journalists today.
