Egyptian diva faces trial for disparaging a river

(AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE) — Egyptian pop diva Sherine Abdel Wahab has been referred to trial for suggesting at a concert that drinking from the Nile River could lead to illness, judicial officials said Wednesday.

The singer’s trial date has been set for December 23, they said, on charges of “harming the public interest”.

The announcement came after the Musicians Syndicate in Egypt said it would bar her from performing in the country after she made the remark at a concert in the United Arab Emirates.
