Mohamed Ali Saad, Editor-in-Chief of “Al-Jumhoreyah” Newspaper, was severely beaten by a number of persons with wearing face masks last Friday evening in front of his house. The perpetrators stopped the beating and fled when some of his neighbors heard him screaming for help and came to his rescue.
Organizations and concerned authorities, local and foreign, must make a decisive stance toward this new assault on journalism.
