Update on John & Tarek's arrests: pressure on Egyptian authorities needed

8:30am Toronto time, August 18/13

We still have no confirmed information about John and Tarek's whereabouts. We calculate that the best course of action would be for Canadian and US friends to pressure Egyptian embassies and consulates and also Canadian and US foreign affairs offices. Many of these offices will not be open on Sundays, but here is some contact information.
