Egypt: Mapping Military Staff in Civilian Administrations

Egyptian independent activists started the mapping initiative el3askarmap [ar] aimed at following what happens to military personnel after their retirement from the army. Very often those senior officers land at influential positions within various civilian administrations. The map is actually a database: zooming in provides details on every person and his functions. The initiative has its Facebook page [ar] and Twitter account (@el3askarmap).
