July 16: A bus crash killed eight and wounded ten Serbian tourists near the Red Sea town of Safaga. The Red Sea coastal road on which the accident took place had been the site of many car accidents in the past. [BBC, 7/16]

July 18: Egyptian authorities questioned 12 Egyptians suspected of spreading Shi'a and extremist ideology within the country. The group was led by Hasan Musa, a prominent preacher who used to host a Sunni religious program on Egyptian television before converting to Shi'ism. He also was believed to have ties to Iran. [GN, 7/18]

July 20: The appeals court in Adwa overturned the three-year sentence and 100,000 Egyptian pound fine of Munir Sa'id Hana, the civil servant arrested for writing poems insulting President Husni Mubarak. His arrest came to light on July 14. [BBC, 7/20]

July 21: The Ministry of Health called on Egyptians planning to make the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca to postpone their trips due to the large number of cases of swine flu in Saudi Arabia. [Al-Ahram, 7/21]

July 26: Egyptian authorities referred 26 men accused of plotting terrorist attacks for Hizbullah on Suez shipping and tourists to an "exceptional court." Egypt frequently moved high-profile security cases involving Islamists to such courts, which critics claimed existed to secure quick guilty verdicts while denying the accused their legal rights. [Reuters, 7/26]

Aug. 23: A group of 22 alleged Hizbullah members were put on trial in Cairo for spying on and planning to attack a group of tourists in the Sinai, a popular vacation destination among Israelis, and surveilling shipping in the Suez Canal.
