The South Giza prosecution office issued an order hours ago to release Egyptian model Salma El Shimy and photographer Hossam Mohamed, Youm7 reports. According to local media, bail has been set at EGP 1,000 for each of the detainees, who face charges of shooting at the Saqqara Necropolis without a photography permit, Al Ahram reports. 

The two were arrested and interrogated after photos of Shimy posing at the archeological site went viral, stirring controversy among social media users, with some decrying her appearance and Ancient Egyptian-themed dress as revealing. 

The two were reported by Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, which issued a statement on Facebook, calling the photos “inappropriate,” adding that the government agency is “keen on preserving archaeological sites and that anyone who shows negligence when it comes to antiquities or our unique Egyptian civilization will be punished.”
