Egypt ‘gay marriage’ video detainees to face trial

 According to Gulf News, eight men arrested in Egypt for appearing in a “gay marriage” video that went viral on the Internet have been referred to trial for inciting debauchery, judicial sources said on Monday.

Homosexuality is not included in a list of sexual offences explicitly outlawed by Egyptian law, but it can be punished under several different statutes on morality.

Seven of the nine men identified from the video were arrested on September 6. They tested negative after they were put through medical exams to detect whether they were homosexuals.
