Not a day after the American died in detention in Egypt after being arrested in North Sinai the Egyptian Police have arrested a British citizen there as well.

They were searching for him after getting reports of "a foreigner who frequents cafes and mixes with citizens". He was in possession of a black jacket, trousers and shoes resembling a uniform.

Wearing clothes that resemble police or military uniforms can lead to arrest in Egypt.

My favourite line ...police had searched for the man after receiving reports of "a foreigner who frequents cafes and mixes with citizens".

You heard it guys: if you are foreigner here best to avoid drinking coffee and 'mixing with citizens'

wth!

One of the articles on this recent event made mention of the widely mocked State campaign a while back where they aired a commercial cautioning Egyptian nationals from speaking with foreigners during their time of suspicion of foreign interference in their country. The commercial showed Egyptian guys drinking tea and visiting at a cafe and then a foreigner comes up, sits down, talks with them and then goes to text on their cell phone.
