CAIRO: Two young Egyptians caught in the act of kissing in public in Cairo
during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan have been fined 100 pounds ($17.50)
each, newspapers reported Wednesday.
A court in Kasr al-Nil district found the pair guilty of offending public
morals when they kissed in broad daylight on the banks of the Nile.
The man, aged 25, argued in his defence that his 21-year-old friend was a
colleague whom he regarded as a "sister" and with whom he would exchange a kiss
every time their paths crossed.
The holy month of Ramadan is a time for abstinence and religious reflection
during daylight hours.
