State Security Officers Search & Raid the Rizk Family Residence

Egyptian State Security officers have raided and searched the home of Philip Rizk - a 26 year old German-Egyptian journalist & human rights activist - who had been abducted by elements from this same security apparatus on Friday (Feb. 6) night, after having participated in a solidarity march in the Qalyubiya Governorate with "To Gaza" activists.

Arriving after midnight (the earliest hours of Monday, Feb. 9)these plain-clothed State Security officers searched the Rizk family residence and specifically Philip's room (through which they rampaged); the officers are said to have searched the residence for around two hours and then left. Reportedly nothing was confiscated.

Further details soon.
