book seized by egyptian customs

Just the other day I wrote that the written word has a hard time in Sudan. Now some news from Egypt. Books have been taken by customs. I assume that the reason is not to encourage the personnel at the port to read more. The 400 copies of the book titled “Walls of Freedom” were taken. So a blow to the wall of freedom, a celebration of street art in the post-2011 period.
