CAIRO, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 24th Nov, 2016 ) - A prominent television anchor, Amr El Leithy, said he was barred from leaving Egypt on Thursday, in the third case of authorities imposing a travel ban in less than a week. Leithy, an employee of the private Al-Hayat channel, was prevented from taking a flight from Cairo to Dubai with his family, an airport official said. "There is a legal complaint against El Leithy accusing him of incitement to protest against the state and disturbing social peace," a prosecution official said, requesting anonymity because he is not authorised to speak to the media.
