6: 23pm Ahram Online was able to confirm through Judge Ahmed El-Zend, the president of the Judge’s Club, that a number of judges who are monitoring the election process have been taken hostage in polling stations by voters angry at tardiness of ballots.

El-Zend spoke on the phone to some of these judges in the presence of Ahram reporters and assured them that he would do his best to make sure that they will continue on their part to serve Egypt in this historic election, and that every judge in the country "will sleep at his home with their families tonight."

Judge El-Zend advised besieged judges to avoid discussions with angry voters, who have been waiting for ballots to arrive since the early morning hours of this election Monday, in order not to escalate the situation.
