 Police released Joe Stork deputy director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East and North Africa division after he and his translator were briefly detained at police headquarters in Samanoud in the Nile Delta city.

Stork has previously criticized the current events in Egypt stressing that the combination of restrictive laws, intimidation and arbitrary arrests is making it extremely difficult for citizens to choose freely the people they want to represent them in parliament.

Both men were released after 30 minutes in custody.
