CAIRO, Egypt (WNB) - Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin announced on Twitter last night she had been jailed by Egyptian police.
Benjamin was leading a group of fellow leftist whackjobs activists to Hamas-lead Gaza when she was arrested. In a desperate series of tweets she claimed police had broken her arm (although apparently not bad enough to affect her seemingly-endless typing), and were giving her only bread and water.
Friends were originally worried about the activist's safety due to the infamous frequency of sexual assaults on dissidents in police custody, but Egyptian authorities quickly dispelled those fears. "She repeatedly asked to be raped, but frankly, nobody was interested. We can't wait to get her out of here."
