New York, June 28, 2013--Egypt's Ministry of Investment sent notice today to all satellite
television channels warning they will be shut down if the government deems that
their coverage of this weekend's political protests incites violence, insults individuals,
or contradicts societal values, news reports said. Numerous journalists are also
facing new legal threats in the two days since President Mohamed Morsi blasted
independent media in his national address, according to Egyptian news reports,
which also described the abduction of an editor.
