Authorities detain tourists for allegedly shooting porn films



Naval forces in the city of Hurghada, in the governorate of the Red Sea, arrested on Saturday 10 Georgian tourists who were allegedly shooting pornographic movies off the coast near Giftun Island.

A navy patrol alerted the Tourism Police of the incident so that they could proceed to investigate. The police seized the tourists' equipment, while the suspects were transferred to the port of Hurghada for questioning.

A security source said that the tourists arrived in Hurghada a few days ago and took a boat from the resort at which they were staying.

Local media reports said that the tourists were released shortly after the prosecution of Hurghada interrogated them over charges of filming pornographic films near Giftun Island.

The Prosecution’s investigation showed that the camera contained non-pornographic pictures and video clips. The tourists were handed back their cameras and dismissed.
