Egypt internet: Sisi ratifies law tightening control over websites

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has signed a new law that tightens controls over the internet.

The legislation on “cybercrime” means websites can be blocked in Egypt if deemed to constitute a threat to national security or the economy.

Anyone found guilty of running, or just visiting, such sites could face prison or a fine.

Authorities say the new measures are needed to tackle instability and terrorism.
