Egypt sent five more men to prison April 9 for “habitual practice of debauchery.”
The men, arrested in an ongoing crackdown mostly on HIV-positive people, will spend three years in jail followed by an additional three years when they will have to stay at the police station nightly from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
