RSFReporters Without Borders has this interesting piece, to be viewed in the context of military personnel in the U.S. who have started Facebook, Twitter, or other social network pages.

Reporters Without Borders condemns blogger Ahmed Hassan Basiouny’s trial by court martial, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, and calls for the immediate withdrawal of the charges against him. He is the second blogger to face a court martial in Egypt.

Basiouny is being prosecuted for creating a Facebook page in 2009 that offered advice and information to young people thinking of enlisting in the Egyptian army.
