Egypt:Court upholds
Cairo - An Egyptian court on Wednesday upheld an earlier ruling to freeze the assets of three rights activists.

The freezing of their assets and those of five other rights campaigners in September is part of a wider case against at least 12 rights groups that dates back to 2011, but which was revived in 2015.

The eight face allegations they illegally obtained foreign funds which were subsequently used to destabilize Egypt.
