Blogger and Journalist Wael Abbas (@waelabbas) is staging a sit-in at Cairo airport, protesting his political harassement. 3arabawy reports:

Wael was heading back from Sweden where he was attending a social media conference. His plane arrived around 3am in Cairo. His passport was taken by State Security Police for four hours, and was only returned to him after he staged a sit in with a banner. Now the customs agents have taken his laptop and said they won’t be returning it except after investigating it.

He was tweeting live up to a point, not sure what’s happening now.
