An Egyptian court has convicted actor Amr Waked of “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” fame for damaging a car parked outside his Cairo home, sentencing him to three months in prison, his lawyer said on Monday, in a case suspected of serving as punishment for the actor’s opposition to President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s rule.
