After few hours we found Mona announcing that she was free and after few minutes we being to know horrific details. Mona was a subjected of terrible sexual assaults by 5-6 CSF conscripts who attacked her terribly and mercilessly
At first she was blindfolded for 2 hours before somebody interrogated and ask her useless questions like why you are here and why you are in Tahrir. Mona made it clear that she is an American citizen and she wants a lawyer or someone from the embassy.
The military intelligence officers then told her to remove the blindfold and apologized for what the CSF did , they took photos for her bruises and recorded her ordeal then let her go.
Here is Mona with the casts in both hands.
Mona also spoke about that nightmare she had been through in CNN.
She is not the first journalist to be attacked brutally. Of course one ask what if it were not Mona El Tahawy but rather a simple Egyptian girl called Mona who got no passport except the Egyptian one , who is not a famous journalist but just simple Mona.
Reporters with borders are advising female reporters not to go to Tahrir square after this attack.
