Ayman Nour and his secrets

Since his release last week, Ayman Nour has talked on more than one occassion about "changes" about to happen in Egypt. According to el-Badeel today, he said during a conference in Alexandria on Wednesday that he has information about "many influential events" that will happen in Egypt during the coming three months. He refused to reveal any details, except that he expects many political prisoners to be released soon. I don't know what to think about this, except, of course, that it's a clever way to create headlines and maintain the attention of the media in the absence of real news.

  1. "he expects many political prisoners to be released soon." How many is many? Political prisons have a revolving door. People entering and people leaving all the time. So yes these are probably comments for gaining attention as you think.
