Egyptian Army still holds 100 protesters, 50 missing

I got the news from BBC – not Al Jazeera – which shows you got to follow multiple news sources.

The Egyptian Army, according to BBC sources, is still holding 100 pro-democracy protesters in prisoner camps and 50 more people are flat out missing – including Ziad Bakir, a graphic designer. Shadows of doubt about the military government’s intentions are cast longer and darker by stories like this. What could be the purpose in further detention? Not seeing anything about this on @Sandmonkey, @Ghonim, or Al Jazeera.

The Army may make nice with meetings with Wael Gohnim and other “young guys,” but proof of intent is in action not words.

Also according to BBC, the latest death figure from the Egyptian Revolution is 365.
