Police have stormed the offices of Al Jazeera in Giza, after hours the authorities banned its Mubasher Misr channel from working in Egypt.

The Qatari-owned news channel's offices in Agouza, Dokki and Imbaba were raided on Friday morning.

On Thursday, the Egyptian government banned Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr from working in Egypt because it does not hold the requisite permits. It was also accused of spreading lies and rumours damaging to national security.

Some observers have criticised the channel for being biased towards the Muslim Brotherhood.

The office of Al-Mayadeen channel was also raided. The channel was founded and is owned by Tunisian-Lebanese talk show host Ghassan Bin Jiddo.

I am an Iranian medical doctor and interested in Egypt's politics.I agree 100% that Aljazira being biased towards the Muslim Brotherhood and closing its offices is right thing to do.I wish good luck to the Egyptian people on the way to democracy.

Accountability
Accountability goes hand in hand with freedom of speech. Channels, such as Al Jazeera, which spread rumors and is known to side with the Muslim Brotherhood must be accountable for its actions. Banning and shutting down is the right thing to do.
