Egyptian Security forces have broken into the studios of Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr and have locked up its employees inside, shortly after the arrest of crews of Islamic TV channels.

Earlier on Wednesday, shortly after the military announcement of the ouster of Islaimst president Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-owned television channel Misr 25 went off air along with several other Islamist-run channels, including the controversial Hafez and Al-Nas.

Police forces went to the Media Production City in Cairo's 6 October, where the offices and studios of these channels are located, and evacuated them, according to Al-Ahram's Arabic-language news portal.

The police also arrested some of the personnel working for these channels.

Military Version of Freedom
Congratulations to the Egyptian people. You now have the the crackdown on the press and later shortly you are going to have a judge heading a government of the military choice. You have the unprofessional police allowing criminals to attack civilians. The leaders of MB are under threat of persecution for their beliefs of Islamist ideology and have been imposed with travel bans. Egyptians! You compare the actions of Morsi's government on the opposition with the actions of the military on the MB now. Well if this is what you ask for, you deserve it.
