The blogger, Radwan has been incarcerated since April 2018 for “disseminating false news.”

Reporters without Borders says, “Mohamed Oxygen’s release ends more than a year of arbitrary detention for this blogger, but it must not distract from the fact that the only one name has been removed from the long list of journalists detained in Egypt.

A journalist has been freed, but others still await release and others continue to be arrested.

Egypt ranks 163 out of 180 countries on the 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
