Magdy L Shafee Freed; Still Faces Charges

The Egyptian cartoonist Magdy L Shafee is out on bail as of about two days ago, via this Facebook posting from a family member. He had been directed to four days of interrogation based on a weekend arrest for protesting in Cairo. Here's a pretty thorough article on the original arrest.

Shafee still faces charges that sound ridiculously broad and randomly applied. He will likely continue to find helpful the attention and support of peers and fans in various locations around the world as this progresses. The World War 3 Illustrated tumblr looks like a go-to place for updates on both Shafee's situation and any events in support.
