Egypt President Approves Law Clamping Down On Social Media

Egypt's parliament has passed a controversial law that will allow the state to regulate social media users. Under the law, a personal social media account, blog or website with more than 5,000 followers could be considered a media outlet and subject to media law.

Critics say the legislation will increase the authorities' ability to crack down on free speech and dissent. A number of opposition activists have been arrested in recent months on charges of spreading false news online.
Tens of thousands of people have been detained in Egypt since 2013, when the military overthrew Mohammed Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, following mass protests against his rule.
