Web Exclusive Video: Voices of Egypt

NOW presents an insider's look into Egyptian culture and politics through the eyes of bloggers Alaa Abd El Fattah and Manal Hassan. In addition to creating a community website, they also participate in demonstrations for human rights and free expression in Egypt. But their activism has come at a price -- Alaa spent 46 days in jail, creating an uproar for his release. In this web exclusive video, the couple share their story and hopes for their beloved homeland.
