The Short List

  • In Egypt, the police have joined the army in the streets, as protesters call for a "march of millions" on Tuesday.  It appears the Egyptian government is lashing out at Al Jazeera, who's coverage of the protests has transfixed the region, by detaining six AJ journalists.  The journalists have since been released.

  • The Washington Post reports that Pakistan's nuclear arsenal exceeds 100.

  • Indonesia has jailed pop star Ariel over a sex tape scandal.

  • India has imprisoned a rights-activist on specious charges.

  • Tunisia has fallen off the radar screen.
