Egyptian authorities have arrested the editor of an independent news website for operating without a license, the latest episode in a widening crackdown on independent media, officials said Wednesday.Prosecutors were questioning Sabri Wednesday, they said.The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.The arrest came a day after President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi won a second, four-year term in office, with 97 percent of the vote in last week's election. Sisi, who overthrew Egypt's first freely elected president in 2013 amid mass protests against his rule, has since waged the heaviest crackdown on dissent in Egypt's modern history.
