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.

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.
