Code Pink Co-Founder Held at Egypt Airport, Deported

Code Pink Co-Founder Held at Egypt Airport, Deported

Tuesday, 04 March 2014 11:59 AM EST

A co-founder of the U.S. activist group Code Pink, Medea Benjamin, who was detained at Cairo airport en route to the Gaza Strip, has been deported.

Benjamin has been deported to Turkey, Code Pink said in a Twitter posting. The activist was on her way to Gaza as part of an International Women’s Day delegation.

“The police pulled my arm out the socket, my arm is dislocated,” Benjamin said by phone from Cairo airport jail earlier today.

A police officer at the airport, who asked not to be identified by name because he’s not authorized to speak to the media, said the activist had not been arrested, and was being held because the Rafah crossing into Gaza is closed today.
