FILE - In this file photo taken Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef speaks during an interview with The Associated Press in Cairo, Egypt. Youssef was back on air on Friday, Feb. 7, true to his style of mocking the euphoria gripping Egyptians surrounding the country's military chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who is widely expected to run for president. Private broadcaster CBC had suspended Youssef's show last fall after the season's first episode, but he returned on a different broadcaster. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty, File)
