Best Arabic Blog 2006: Jar el Kamar

The 15 winners of the Deutsche Welle Best of Blogs - BOB - award was announced today. Global Voices blogged the ceremony in Berlin. Alexandrian blogger Jar el Kamar is the best Arabic blog. Motivation:
An example of citizen journalism, Jar el Kamar has been able to cover incidents in his local city of Alexandria more bravely than your typical media outlet. He was on the front line of dangerous situations including violence happening around parliamentary elections and church attacks. He blogs also about culture, social issues and other topics.

Well earned and many congratulations! Read about winners in other categories here.
