Banned satirist says Egypt's leaders do not accept criticism

Published: 12.05.13, 00:03 / Israel News

Egypt's most popular television satirist, Bassem Youssef, who was pulled off the airwaves last month after mocking the army chief, said on Wednesday the move showed the military-backed rulers were intolerant of opposing views.

 

Youssef rose to fame after the 2011 uprising that overthrew autocratic president Hosni Mubarak. He had criticized Islamist President Mohamed Morsi who took office after Mubarak and was ousted by the army in July after mass protests against his rule. (Reuters)
