Awful: Journalist live-tweets being beaten, robbed by CSF during protests in Cairo

http://twitter.com/#!/cliffcheney/status/272748754581454848

Just awful. A journalist just live-tweeted being beaten and robbed by CSF (Central Security Forces) in Cairo, Egypt. As Twitchy reported this morning, the protests over President Morsi’s power grab continue. The Muslim Brotherhood then encouraged its supporters to take to the streets, and chaos has spread to outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

Journalist Cliff Cheney was reporting from the scene, and was attacked for it by Egyptian security forces.

Not much chanting in Tahrir. Fighting still at north wall of USEmbassyCairo

@seldeeb was near front at US Embassy. I paused too long while rolling video and was taken. They took the camera I was shooting with.

@sarahngb yes. Safe now.

@seldeeb not yet. Where would I do this?

@e2_squared correction: beaten and robbed by police

— Cliff Cheney (@cliffcheney) November 25, 2012

@seldeeb I emailed the press center and will go there tomorrow.

— Cliff Cheney (@cliffcheney) November 25, 2012

@seldeeb would have to cross battle zone.

— Cliff Cheney (@cliffcheney) November 25, 2012

The whole time I was shouting journalist and American in Arabic. They were even saying ‘American’ as they kept trying to take my stuff.

This is a “positive step forward,” U.S. embassy?

Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation and update with further developments.
