Last Night’s Talk Shows: Mohamed El Amin arrested on assault charges; Lamees El Hadidi and Amr Adib have covid

It was a quiet night on the airwaves after Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi and El Hekaya’s Amr Adib — married IRL — both tested positive for covid-19 over the weekend. It’s unclear when they’ll be back on our TV screens.

Former CBC owner Mohamed El Amin was detained on Friday and is being held for four days pending investigation on charges of of human trafficking and the assault of girls in an orphanage he established. Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Mousssa held an extended interview with Social Solidarity Minister Nevine El Kabbaj (watch, runtime: 54:26) on the arrest.

Sixteen people died and 18 were hospitalized after a bus and a microbus collided in South Sinai on Saturday, the Health Ministry said yesterday. The injured were taken to hospitals in Sharm El Sheikh and El Tor, and are receiving treatment, the statement said. Masaa DMC covered the story (watch, runtime: 1:34).
