    Human rights groups have condemned the prison sentence of the 26-year -old Egyptian blogger Maikel Nabil.

    Nabil was sentenced to three years in jail by a military tribunal for a blog entry he wrote called "The people and the army were never hand in hand".

    His jailing raises questions whether the regime in Egypt has changed at all since Hosni Mubarak stood down as president.
