The United States on Thursday slammed a "concerted campaign" of intimidation against international journalists covering the upheaval in Egypt.



"There is a concerted campaign to intimidate international journalists in Cairo and interfere with their reporting. We condemn such actions," said State Department spokesman Philip Crowley on the microblogging website Twitter.



The statement, the second of its kind by the State Department in as many days, followed reports of attacks on journalists covering the mass protests in Egypt.
