TORONTO - The families, friends and colleagues of two Canadians arrested in Egypt say they're very concerned about the safety of their loved ones.
John Greyson, a Toronto-based filmmaker and York University professor, and Tarek Loubani, a doctor in London, Ont., were in Cairo and on their way to Gaza on Friday when they were arrested by Egyptian police.
Loubani's family says the pair's detention "falls short" of Egypt's commitment to democratic values.
The men have been held in a Cairo prison for more than 48 hours.
