Egypt police arrest ElBaradei campaigners

Egyptian police yesterday arrested seven youth leaders of the protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square shortly after they visited leading dissident Mohamed ElBaradei, their families said.

The seven were named as Shadi al-Ghazali Harb, Amr Salah, Amr Ezz, Ahmed Doma, Amr Arafat, Nasser Mustafa Shawki and Nasser Abdel-Hamid.

Relatives said they were arrested at a café near the Pyramids of Giza outside of the capital shortly after visiting Nobel peace laureate ElBaradei, who is considered a leader of the opposition by many involved in the anti-regime protests shaking Egypt.
