Family Says Egypt Arrested Brit for Military Chopper Video

Friday, 30 November 2018 12:38 PM EST

CAIRO (AP) — The family of a 19-year-old British tourist says Egyptian authorities have arrested the young man over a video he filmed on his cellphone that showed a military helicopter in the background.

Speaking from the UK on Friday, humanitarian relief worker Shareen Nawaz told The Associated Press that her cousin, Libyan-British Muhammed Fathi AbulKasem, was arrested shortly after he arrived in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria on Nov. 21.

She said he faced a court three times over the past week on charges of collecting intelligence on the Egyptian military. His mother, Amaal Rafiq, confirmed his arrest in a Facebook post.

Egypt's Foreign Ministry couldn't immediately be reached for comment. The UK's Foreign Office confirmed the arrest of a Briton in Alexandria, but didn't elaborate.
