Egyptian woman arrested over racy music video
May. 25, 2015
CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities have arrested a woman who danced in a racy music video that went viral on the internet and referred her to misdemeanor court for "inciting debauchery."
The clip, a low-budget production entitled "Hands Off," or "Sib Eddi" in Egyptian Arabic, contains no nudity but plenty of scantily-clad booty shaking by the woman, Reda el-Fouly, who dances to the voice of a singer called Mena.
Ahmed Bakly of the Giza prosecution said in a statement that the clip "disrupted morality." He also ordered the arrest of Wael Elsedeki, who he described as el-Fouly's boyfriend who had left the country for Tunisia after some social media users called the video scandalous, and a third person involved in the video.
