Egyptian authorities deported three reporters from Al Jazeera English on Sunday, DPA reports. The reporters were deported after being arrested four days earlier on charges of covering events in Egypt with unlicensed devices and without obtaining the necessary approvals.

Official sources at Cairo airport said that three correspondents are "Wayne High" (New Zealandian) and "just Bradlo" (British) and "Ross Finn" (Irish). The reporters were deportedon the plane flying to London without any of the devices that have been seized with them.

Egyptian authorities have banned Qatari channel Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr from working in the country on the allegation that it does not have legal permits to work in the country.

Al Jazeera has earned the wrath of many Egyptians who opposed the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood for its reported anti-government coverage in recent weeks.

Rule of Law or Rule of Papa Say?
Do Egyptians want to live in a society that has a rule of law that is transparent and equally dispensed to all, or would they prefer a heavy handed daddy who knows best, takes no lip, and carries a belt? Now is the time to decide and speak up. The world is watching.

Military junta has got lot to hide.....
Arresting, jailing, deporting journalist and closing media and TV channels only proves that this military junta does not want the world to see the tyranny, oppression and massacres its is committing against its own people. All this is fruitless as information is transmitted in an instant via the internet. For how long will this Oppressive regime carry on with its tyranny, oppression and orgy of murder and massacres? They should remember that they will taste the same fate that pharoah tasted after oppressing Moses's people. Ironically pharoah of today Sisi who is oppressing Morsi's people.
