Brother of well-known Egyptian activist to be held 15 days

FILE - In this Feb. 8, 2011 file photo, Egyptian Wael Ghonim, center, talks to the crowd in Tahrir Square, in Cairo, Egypt. Ghonim said late Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019 in a video on his twitter account that authorities raided his parents' house in Cairo and arrested his brother Hazem, whom he described as "a political person" and confiscated his parents' passports. Ghonim alleges that the Egyptian embassy in the U.S. threatened him the previous day "something will happen" if he didn't stop criticizing Egypt's government on social media.
