The Associated Press has found that the prominent American author is among dozens of activists, lawyers and human rights advocates who have been targeted in a sweeping cyberespionage campaign blamed on the Egyptian government. Booby-trapped emails sent to Eltahawy in December came from the same address behind the distribution of identical malicious messages to a host of other activists across Egypt.(AP Photo/Maya Alleruzzo, File)

This photo posted on a file sharing website Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017, by the Islamic State Group in Sinai, a militant organization, shows a deadly attack by militants on an Egyptian police checkpoint, Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, in el-Arish, north Sinai, Egypt. An Israeli defense official said Wednesday that the country has developed a new policy in recent years to allow Egypt to quickly beef up its forces in the volatile Sinai peninsula as part of a shared struggle against Islamic militants. The comments came days after Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh el-Sissi said there are about 25,000 Egyptian troops operating in Sinai. Arabic reads, "Clash with light arms with the remaining apostates left alive at the fire station checkpoint." (Islamic State Group in Sinai, via AP)

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron, left, greets Egyptian president Abdel Fatah el-Sisi at 10 Downing Street in London ahead of their meeting Thursday Nov. 5, 2015. British Prime Minister David Cameron declared Thursday it was "more likely than not" that a bomb brought down a Metrojet flight packed with Russian vacationers — a scenario that officials from Russia and Egypt tried to dismiss as premature speculation. Cameron said he had grounded all flights to and from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, stranding thousands of British tourists at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, because of "intelligence and information" indicating that a bomb was the likely culprit in the crash Saturday that killed 224 people.
