Detention for Egyptian pop diva who shocked viewers with fruity video clip
Prosecutors have ordered an Egyptian female pop singer detained for a week on accusations of promoting debauchery in a racy video clip.
Shaimaa Ahmed, a 25-year-old singer better known by her stage name Shima, appears in the video in her underwear singing while suggestively eating an apple and a banana before a class of young men.
The video created a stir on social media in conservative Egypt and was discussed on TV chat shows.
Officials said Shima was arrested last week following a flurry of complaints.
She was remanded for four days.
Prosecutors on Monday ordered her detained for seven days.
