Filmmaker Jailed Over Music Video That Mocked Egypt’s President Dies in Prison

An Egyptian filmmaker detained for two years over a music video that mocked Egypt President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi has died, his family said Saturday, another death inside the country’s prisons that human-rights groups have criticized for their harsh treatment of prisoners.

Shady Habash, 24 years old, was one of tens of thousands of artists, activists, protesters and others arrested in Egypt in recent years as Mr. Sisi attempts to snuff out potential challenges to his rule in the years following the 2011 Arab Spring uprising.
