Cars swarm around a gas station in Cairo yesterday. This photo was taken by the Post’s Linda Davidson, who (with reporter Leila Fadel) was just released by the Egyptian military after being arrested, cuffed, blindfolded and interrogated. Still in custody are Sufian Taha, their translator and a longtime Post employee,  and Mansour el-Sayed Mohammed Abo Gouda, their Egyptian driver.
