Egyptian authorities today arrested six al-Jazeera journalists as the government continues its media crackdown after a week of political protest in the country.

The journalists were arrested and had their cameras and other broadcasting equipment seized by the military in Cairo earlier today, according to the satellite TV channel’s United Arab Emirates correspondent in Egypt, Dan Nolan.
