Update: Google MENA Marketing Head Wael Ghonim Apprehended in Egypt, Please Help Locate Him

2 Feb, 2011

Update: google issued the following statement:

“A Googler, Wael Ghonim, is missing in Egypt. He has not been seen since late Thursday evening in central Cairo. The safety of our employees is very important to Google, so if anyone has any information please call the following U.K. number: +44 20 7031 3008.”

Update2: some people say that it is not Wael in the video, however as I personally know him the person looks like him, but we are not 100% sure, what we are sure about is that he is missing.

The regime in Egypt has apprehended thousands of protestors as the revolution in Egypt grows every day. One of these people who has been apprehended is Wael Ghonim an Egyptian native and who is Head of Marketing for Google Middle East.

Wael has been active in using Facebook and Twitter in supporting of change in the political scene of Egypt. While he was in Cairo to attend a conference ( his work location is Dubai) he joined the demonstrations to later to be apprehended by secret police as the video below shows, apparently as of last Thursday the time of his last tweet.

Wael is a great friend to AC and one of our fans we ask anyone who knows anything about his where about to call Google’s published UK phone number +44 20 7031 3008.
, which is designated by Google for whoever seen him.

We pray to God for Ghonim safety and peaceful release. And we also pray for the safety of all ArabCrunch team members in Egypt.
