A talk show host in Egypt has been jailed for three years after voicing support for single mothers.
Duaa Sayed Salah was jailed for inciting infidelity and immorality after appearing on Egyptian television to discuss single mothers while wearing a fake baby bump.
Salah titled her episode ‘Buy a Man’, in which she told viewers how to become single mothers if they want to.
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.”
Sex before marriage is widely regarded as unacceptable in socially conservative Egypt.
