DOHA - The pan-Arab Al Jazeera television network accused Egyptian authorities on Tuesday of a sustained campaign of intimidation against its staff, rejecting charges of pro-Islamist bias in its reporting on the crisis in Egypt.

Hours after the Egyptian military ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on July 3, security forces raided the Cairo offices of Al Jazeera's Egyptian news channel, which military sources accused at the time of broadcasting "incitement".Based in Qatar, a Gulf Arab state viewed as sympathetic to Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, Al Jazeera had been criticized by many Egyptians for its perceived bias in covering their country.
