EGYPT: Citizen journalists chronicle unrest
"The national anthem at Tahrir Square like you've never heard before," says the caption on this video, uploaded Thursday by an Egyptian citizen journalist.
Ahmed Agour, a citizen journalist trained by the nonprofit International Center for Journalists, has filed regular on-the-spot reports and videos of anti-government protests in recent days on his blog. The satellite channel Al-Arabiya and online newspaper Youm Sabie have picked up some of the reports.
Agour participated in the Washington-based group's training last year in Egypt, called "On the Margins No More." The training was designed to develop a corps of Egyptian citizen journalists outside state control.
