Egyptian columnists protest military censorship

CAIRO (AP) — Three Egyptian columnists withheld their regular commentaries in an independent daily Wednesday to protest what they said was censorship by the country's military rulers.
The three columnists — Belal Fadl, Omer Taher and Nagla Bedir — left their columns blank, publishing only a few words explaining their decision.
"I withhold my writing today to protest the barring, impounding of newspapers and the presence there of military censorship," the three wrote in place of their columns.
