In this unda­ted ima­ge Egyp­tian author Ahmed Naji poses for a pho­to in Cai­ro, Egypt. Naji was sen­ten­ced to two years in jail on Satur­day, Feb. 20, 2016, by a Cai­ro appeals court for publi­shing a sexual­ly expli­cit excerpt of his novel that pro­se­cu­tors said vio­la­ted “public mode­sty.” Naji was ini­tial­ly acquit­ted by ano­ther court, but pro­se­cu­tors appea­led the ver­dict.
