"Egypt arrested a prominent journalist and human rights advocate on Sunday after he was questioned by military intelligence over a report he published about a trial of former army officers, security sources said. They said Hossam Bahgat was summoned over charges of publishing false information in his October report about the 26 officers he said had been convicted by a military court of plotting a coup."
