BBC News Crew Detained in Egypt, Released After Two Hours

A BBC News crew reporting on Egypt’s presidential election was temporarily detained in Egypt today.

Cairo correspondent Orla Guerin, Cairo producer Wael Hussein, and Middle East producer Kate Benyon-Tinker were initially cornered in a building by local Egyptians accusing them of being spies. Police then detained the crew, along with a woman they were interviewing.

Egypt’s presidential election is between former military chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and Hamdeen Sabahi.
