Wael Ghonim, Google's still-missing exec in Egypt, named spokesman for opposition group | Technology | Los Angeles Times

Quote:
There is widespread speculation that Ghonim, who is Google's head of marketing in the Middle East and North Africa, is being held by Mubarak's government, though the government hasn't confirmed holding him.

On Thursday, a leader of the 6th of April opposition group told CBS reporter Khaled Wassef that the protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square had elected Ghonim the group's spokesman. Tahir Square has been the scene of violent protests recently, with pro-Mubarak supporters having attacked thousands of anti-government demonstrators.
