Journalists for Reform: Assault on Foreign Journalist in Egypt is Unrepresentative
Egyptian young journalists condemn mob-attack on UK Daily Mail’s Natasha Smith, in Egypt; and assert that the Egyptian Journalists' union is quite capable of safeguarding her rights.

Egyptian 'Journalists for Reform' movement condemned vicious attacks on foreign journalists doing their duty in Egypt during the recent period.

The British newspaper "The Daily Mail" journalist, 21-year-old Natasha Smith, described that a group of men in Tahrir Square attacked and sexually assaulted her as she walked around the square filming celebrations of the election results on Sunday, June 24.

The 'Journalists for Reform' youth movement is run by young journalists from the Muslim Brotherhood, and has been playing an important supervisory role over the performance of the press in Egypt during the recent period.

In a statement to Ikhwanweb, the journalist Hassan Kabbani, a member of the movement, said: "This behavior has nothing to do at all with the spirit and values ??of Tahrir Square. We demand the protection of our fellow Western journalists who carry a mission we should all support and protect".

Islam Tawfik, coordinator of the movement, pointed that the law should be applied firmly against the perpetrators of such heinous crimes against journalists and the press at large. Expressing hope for a big role in this for the journalists' union, Tawfik urged the British journalist to lodge a formal complaint with the Egyptian Press Syndicate to take all necessary actions.

"Egyptians respect foreign journalists. What happened is certainly not representatives of Egyptians; it is a totally absurd incident."
