Special Report: Egypt opens legal case against film-makers

A empty show of force, as the people who made the film are here in the US.  Doubtful they will return to Egypt to be prosecuted.

From AGI September 18

Seven US-resident Egyptians charged over 'Innocence' movie
(AGI) - Cairo, 18 Sep - Egyptian prosecutors have opened proceedings against Coptic Egyptian citizens involved in the making of the Innocence of Muslims. Charges of "insulting the Islamic religion and its Prophet" and of "inciting sectarian conflict" are being pressed against seven US-resident Egyptians, namely Morris Sadek, Adel Riad, Nabil Bissada, Esmat Zaklama, Elia Bassily, Ihab Yaacoub and Jack Atallah.
Prosecution is yet to set a trial date. . .
