A Lebanese woman was sentenced to eight years in prison in a judgement passed by an Egyptian court on Saturday, according to report by the state media.

Mona al-Mazbouh was arrested at Cairo airport as she was leaving the country after her short stay there.

The Lebanese woman, identified as 24-year-old Mona al-Mazbouh, was arrested in late May and referred to a criminal court in early June for an urgent trial over her offensive remarks.

In the video, she also claimed that a sum of money was stolen from an apartment she rented near the coastal city of Alexandria on a previous visit to Egypt.

Continuing her rant, Mazbouh called Egypt "the country of pimps. the country of beggars" and said it was a "son of a b**** country".

In May, Egyptian authorities arrested Egyptian activist Amal Fathy after she posted a video attacking the state after a negative experience at a bank.

Symptoms include coughing up blood, fever, chills, night sweats, shortness of breath, chest pains, weight loss and fatigue. Both cancer research buildings were evacuated out of an "abundance of caution" but have now been cleared as safe.

Initially she was sentenced to 11 years in prison, but that was amended within hours to eight years, a judicial source said.

Of course, God willing, the verdict will change. The woman already previously apologized to the "respectable Egyptians" for the video. She also suffers from depression, he said. With all due respect to the judiciary, this is a severe ruling, ' said Emad Kamal.

Al-Ahram's reports says she was charged with "deliberately broadcasting false rumors which aim to undermine society and attack religions".

Mona's lawyer Imad Kamal said that ten years ago she underwent brain surgery, then it's hard for her to cope with anger.

'It is in the context of the law, but the court was applying the maximum penalty'.

The tourist's 10-minute profanity-laden tirade about Egyptians went viral on social media shortly after it was uploaded. But if the appeals court upholds the original sentence, the Lebanese tourist is facing a horribly long time in prison for simply posting a Facebook video ranting about her frightful vacation.
