Egypt military probing activists, media

09 March 2012, 08:51

Cairo - Egypt's official news agency says the nation's chief military prosecutor is investigating allegations against 12 top activists, media personalities, lawmakers and a best-selling novelist.

The agency said the allegations, which include inciting hatred against the military, were filed by more than 700 members of the public.

In a Thursday report, it quoted chief military prosecutor Major General Adel al-Mursi as saying the allegations were being looked into by his office.

The 12 include novelist Alaa al-Aswany, popular TV talk show hosts Youssri Foudah and Reem Maged, former Google executive and activist Wael Ghoneim and a lawmaker who publicly described military leader Hussein Tantawi as a donkey.
