Egyptian prosecutors launched an investigation on Tuesday against a popular television satirist for allegedly insulting the president in the latest case raised by Islamist lawyers against outspoken media personalities.
An Egyptian court says a popular TV presenter and a chief editor of an independent daily are to go on trial for insulting the country's newly elected Islamist president.
He said "spilling" Mr. Morsi's blood would be permissible and alleged the president's Muslim Brotherhood group was behind the attack.
Mr. Okasha's network el-Faraeen, or the Pharaohs, was ordered off the air, after he warned Mr. Morsi not to attend the funeral of 16 Egyptian soldiers killed in a militant attack this month.
