Egypt's Regime Rejects Ayman Nour's Appeal

The court president announced the decision after a hearing attended by foreign observers and journalists but from which the 41-year-old lawyer himself was absent.

Nur was sentenced to five years last December on charges of forging affidavits for the creation of his party in 2004. More
