Egypt enemy

Egypt has been included on human rights group Reporters Without Borders’ list of 13 'enemies of the internet' for the first time

Egypt has been included on human rights group Reporters Without Borders’ list of 13 'enemies of the internet' for the first time.

The group last month organised a 24-hour internet freedom campaign around the theme ‘The internet’s black holes’, which involved netizens logging onto its website as a sign of protest against countries in which internet use and blogging is either banned or tightly controlled.

The full list of internet-restricting countries already included Saudi Arabia, largely due to its attitude to bloggers, according to Reports Without Borders.
