Egypt, Revolutionary Dispatches

Spiraling situation for refugees.

We just received a call from the Somali community leader reporting that people were arrested inside their homes. They showed their UNHCR blue cards, the only form of identification the refugees have, but the military police not knowing anything about these cards arrested them on the spot. The situation for refugees in Cairo has the potential to spiral out of control very quickly. With various actors providing security and the UNHCR closed the people in these communities are stuck in the middle with no protection. My efforts to reach the media in the US have yielded little results thus far, especially when compared to the engagement of the German and European press. Please if you have personal contacts or suggestions of organizations I can reach out to send them to me or give them my information. Thank you.
