Halima Boland posts Snapchat photos of her visit to holy cities

KUWAIT CITY: Kuwaiti TV presenter Halima Boland visited Makkah and Madinah recently along with her parents.
Boland posted her pictures on Snapchat, expressing her emotions through social media.
However, these pictures created a controversy; while a lot of fans congratulated her for visiting the holy cities, some advised her to be more focused on performing her religious rituals there.
Boland was recently able to get her Instagram account back, after it had been hacked.
In December, a court ordered columnist Layla Ahmed to pay a fine of 3,000 Kuwaiti dinars ($10,000) and display good conduct for a period of three years for offending Halima on her Instagram account.
Lawyer Hussain Al-Asfour said the public prosecution accused Ahmed of using her account on social media to insult Boland with phrases deemed offensive to the latter’s dignity.

EgyptAir pulls magazine after Drew Barrymore article

  • EgyptAir will stop printing the issue and will pull out distributed ones from shelves
  • The airline earlier deflected the blame to a partner advertising agency

CAIRO: Egyptian officials say EgyptAir has removed the latest edition of its in-flight magazine over a contentious article it published, purportedly based on an interview with American actress Drew Barrymore.
They say the carrier had agreed with its publisher, Al-Ahram advertising agency, to stop printing more copies of the October issue of the magazine, Horus, and pull the ones already placed onboard the fleet’s aircraft.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk to the media.
Earlier this month, EgyptAir said Al-Ahram is to blame for Horus’ content and specifically for the Barrymore article, which was riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors. It described Barrymore as “being unstable in her relationships” and quoted her as saying that motherhood was “the most important role” of her life.
