The head of Egypt’s Shoura council caused a stir during a flight from Sudan to Egypt when he called on the plane’s staff to stop screening a movie featuring “Hot Scenes”, according to an Egyptian daily.
Ahmed Fahmy, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) and parliament’s upper house speaker, wanted to put a stop to the screening of the movie on the flight. However, passengers on the flight rejected his requests to do so, according to the Egyptian privately owned Arabic daily Al Masry Al Youm.
A brief verbal altercation took place during the flight between the crew and the council delegation which was resolved when the captain intervened and lifted the television screens in front of the council members.
Fahmy was on a visit to the Sudanese capital of Khartoum to stress the importance of revitalizing relations between Egypt and Sudan.
The speaker claimed that Egypt’s parliamentary body had established a new committee to serve mutual Egyptian and African interests in the region, reported Arab Today.net.
