CAIRO - Egyptian police raided the offices of an Al Jazeera channel in Cairo on Thursday and confiscated equipment for the second time this month, the broadcaster said.

The headquarters of Al Jazeera Mubasher Egypt (Live), which broadcasts live international events, were stormed earlier this month by security officers who said the channel did not have a proper license. Rights groups said the move was part of a wider media crackdown.

The government denies it tried to censor media and says the channel had not acquired the necessary documents.
