Egypt TV host gets year in prison for interviewing gay man

An Egyptian court has sentenced a TV host to a year in prison for interviewing a gay sex worker. Mohammed el-Gheiti was found guilty of encouraging immorality over an August 2018 segment in which the guest described his profession. El-Gheiti was fined around $170 and is free pending a final verdict.
