FILE - In this Sunday, Dec. 25, 2011 file photo, Egyptian prominent blogger Alaa Abdel-Fattah, center, holds his newborn son, Khaled, as he stands with his mother Laila Soueif, right, and his sister Ahdaf Soueif, left, after his release, in Cairo, Egypt. Egyptian security forces arrested the prominent political activist Thursday night, Nov. 28, 2013 over inciting a demonstration in defiance of a new law heavily restricting protests in the country, his family said. The arrest of Abdel-Fattah, a blogger who rose to prominence in Egypt's 2011 revolution, quickly dominated social media. His previous detention sparked protests against the military, which appeared likely again as recently quiet liberal and secular groups have expressed increasing alarm over the military-backed government since it enacted the new protest law this week.
