Mona Eltahawy arrested after defacing controversial MTA ad in Times Square

A camerawoman stands between a provocative "Pro-Israeli" ad and Egyptian-American activist Mona Eltahawy who defaces it in the name of protesting racism.

After having spent about 22 hours in police custody, Ms. Eltahawy was interevewed by Hala Gorani on CNN International.

In an attempt to deal with future hatemongering advertisements like the ones currently appearing in subway stations, the MTA yesterday amended the standards that govern what advertising it will accept. (Gothamist)
