Western Morning News - - UK And World News -

An Egyp­tian ac­tress fac­ing trial on pub­lic ob­scen­ity charges for wear­ing a dress re­veal­ing the en­tirety of her legs has said she did not mean to of­fend any­one. In a Face­book state­ment, Ra­nia Youssef said she may have mis­judged the re­ac­tion to the dress and been in­flu­enced by fash­ion ex­perts. Youssef, who is due in court on Jan­uary 12, wore the dress on Thurs­day for the clos­ing cer­e­mony of a Cairo film fes­ti­val. Images of her were widely shared on so­cial me­dia.
