EGYPT: Footage allegedly shows Google exec being detained
Al Jazeera has posted footage on its website that purportedly shows Egyptian plainclothes officers dragging Google executive Wael Ghonim away to detention.
The video, posted on YouTube, shows a group of four men following a crowd of young men on the street, then grabbing one who resembles Ghonim, holding his arms, turning him around and hauling him off down the street in the opposite direction.
Ghonim has been missing for more than a week. On Friday, leaders of the April 6 youth opposition group named him their spokesperson in an effort to persuade the government to release him.
