An Egyptian television presenter has been jailed for three years after she appeared to cast single motherhood in a positive light.
On her show, Doaa Salah discussed ways of becoming pregnant outside a conventional husband-and-wife relationship.
The presenter was charged with outraging public decency.
Sex before or outside marriage is widely regarded as unacceptable in socially conservative Egypt.
According to the BBC, Ms Salah discussed ways of becoming pregnant outside a conventional marriage on her show on Al-Nahar TV.
She reportedly suggested a husband could be paid for a brief marriage, and also told her audience that sperm donation was accepted in Western countries — but not in Egypt. (ABC News)
