For ‘Harassing’ Monkey, Egypt Court Jails Woman for 3 Years

She was arrested in October after a 90-second video of the incident went viral, Al-Ahram said.

The video shows Ahmed laughing while touching the genitals of a monkey at a pet shop in the Nile Delta city and making sexual innuendos as people around her chuckle.

At court she “confessed… to the incident but said she did not mean to commit an indecent act and that she had been tickling the monkey”.

The video sparked a fierce backlash online.
