The Education Ministry has arrested the student responsible for leaking this morning’s Arabic language exam one hour after it began, ministry official Reda Hegazy announced.
Raed Omar was arrested in al-Arish, North Sinai. The student was found to have videoed questions from the exam paper and then published this on the ChaoMing Facebook page, which is notorious for several past exam leaks.
Hegazy told al-Masry al-Youm that the student has been suspended and referred to interrogations for cheating during the exam and having a cell phone on his person.
