Female TV Presenter Jailed In Egypt For Encouraging S*x Before Marriage

An Egyptian TV presenter has been sentenced to three years in prison after she was said to have openly discussed ways of becoming pregnant outside a conventional marriage.
Ms. Doaa Salah, a presenter on Al-Nahar TV, asked if her viewers had considered having s*x before marriage, and also suggested a woman could marry briefly to have children before divorcing.

She was charged and convicted with outraging public decency.

Ms Salah was also ordered to pay 10,000 Egyptian pounds (£430) in compensation. The authorities said the ideas in the programme "threatened the fabric of Egyptian life."

S*x before marriage is widely regarded as unacceptable in Egypt and in many decent climes.
