An Egyptian court Saturday sentenced a Lebanese woman accused of "insulting Egypt and attacking religion," to 11 years in prison, local media reported.The woman, Mona al-Mazbouh, can appeal the ruling at Egypt's court of appeals.Mazbouh was arrested in May as she was leaving Cairo, after a video of her lashing out at widespread sexual harassment in Egypt and calling Egyptians "dirty" and "pimps" began circulating, the Associated Press reported at the time. AP claimed she called them the "dirtiest people on earth" and Egypt "the country of pimps ... the country of beggars," while Reuters wrote that she said Egypt was a "son of a bitch country".
