In Pictures: Sisi supporters face off with Bassem Youssef’s supporters

Pro-army protesters faced-off with supporters of political satirist Bassem Youssef on Wednesday in downtown Cairo while Youssef was filming the second episode of his show 'Al-Bernameg's third season in Radio Theatre. A protest against Youssef was planned ahead due to some viewers' displeasure with the satirist's previous episode. Youssef is being investigated by prosecutor general Hisham Barakat, according to multiple media sources including Reuters. The political satirist created controversy last Friday when he took jabs at the cult of personality surrounding commander of the armed forces Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, Islamists, and the low profile of interim president Adly Monsour.
