Today is Egyptian Gazzette day (or so I decided).

Actor apologises for anti-veil comment

Egyptian movie star Hussein Fahmi has apologised for a statement he had made during a recent phone interview with a TV talk show in which he said that veiled women were "mentally disabled".

Fahmi told a gathering at Cairo Opera House late Wednesday that he did not mean what he had said about veiled women and apologized for "any unintentional offence" his comment may have caused.

"Whatever happened on the programme was a bad choice of words on my part. What I really wanted to say was that wearing the hijab hinders a woman from doing some physical exercises," Fahmi explained.


Other oddities from the Gazzette...

What is a Supremo? Is that like the head pizza man or something?

Muchos love for the Gazette...
