Singer Sherine breaks reporter’s phone at father’s funeral

  • In a moment of anger, Sherine “grabbed the phone” from the reporter, and threw it on the ground.
  • Sherine had requested no media coverage at the hall where the funeral was held.

CAIRO: Sherine Abdel Wahab broke a mobile phone belonging to a reporter who took photos during her father’s funeral.

In a moment of anger, Sherine “grabbed the phone” from the reporter, and threw it on the ground, according to local reports.

The sudden death of Sherine’s father was announced on Tuesday, only a few days after the Egyptian singer celebrated her marriage to singer and composer Hossam Habib.

Sherine had requested no media coverage at the hall where the funeral was held.

The reporter who failed to adhere to the request was questioned by funeral organizers and told to delete the photos she had taken, a local news website said.

Sherine and Habib also demanded that the organizers, who wanted to file a legal complaint against the reporter, let her go without additional measures being taken.

Netflix has no plans to cut ‘Bird Box’ scene despite outcry

NEW YORK: Netflix’s post-apocalyptic survival film “Bird Box” is drawing criticism for using footage of a real fiery Canadian train disaster, but the streaming giant has no plans to remove it.
Netflix licensed the footage of the disaster from the stock image vendor Pond 5 and used it in “Bird Box” in an early TV news montage to set up its horrific premise.
In a statement, Pond 5 says the footage “was taken out of context” and the company wanted to “sincerely apologize.”
But a Netflix spokesman said on Thursday that it wasn’t planning to cut the footage, saying: “We will keep the clip in the movie.” But the spokesman acknowledged that Netflix will be looking at ways to do things differently moving forward.
