Egypt Activist Imprisoned Six Months for Insulting Morsi

AFP – An Egyptian opposition youth activist was on Monday sentenced by a Cairo court to six months in prison for insulting President Mohamed Morsi. Ahmed Duma, who was tried for calling Morsi “a criminal and murderer” during a television broadcast, was also ordered to pay a fine of 200 Egyptian pounds (22 euros). The activist blogger can be released on bail of 5,000 pounds (550 euros) pending a decision by an appeals court. Duma is the first anti-Morsi activist to be sentenced to a jail term, according to human rights groups.
