Egypt jails US couples for adoption
Two US couples have been jailed for two years in Egypt for illegal child trafficking.

Seven other people were also sentenced in the case, first of its kind in the country, which became publicly known earlier this year after the US embassy in Cairo reported it was suspicious of the couples after they tried to get their adopted children out of Egypt.

The four, Iris Botros and Louis Andros of Durham, North Carolina, and Egyptian-born Suzan Hagoulf and her husband Medhat Metyas, were also fined 100,000 Egyptian pounds ($18,150) each.

They went on trial in May on charges of child trafficking and forgery after being arrested in December.
