Egypt military questions leading activist journalist

Egyptian military prosecutors on Sunday questioned investigative journalist and rights activist Hossam Bahgat on suspicion of publishing false information, the website for which he works said. The Mada Masr website said Bahgat, 37, was questioned for nearly nine hours and then taken to the prosecutor’s office. “Hossam called his lawyer and told him he was being accused of having published false information and lies that were damaging to the public interest,” Lina Attalah, the website’s chief editor, told AFP.
