Hour 1

As peaceful protests in Egypt turned violent, there have been increasing reports of attacks on and detentions of civilians, non-governmental foreign workers and journalists by pro-Mubarak supporters.  Over the weekend details of some of these abuses and human rights violations at the hands of Egyptian law enforcement officials were published. We’ll talk about these attacks on pro-democracy demonstrators, activists and journalists, as well as Egypt’s human rights record, with TOM MALINOWSKI of Human Rights Watch and JOEL SIMON of the Committee to Protect Journalists.
