News Summary

From The Arab Voice

• The police were put on full alert n New York City when a group of Americans entered the hospital complaining of stomach pains after having eaten one of the best Egyptian dishes in an Egyptian restaurant. The police rushed to the store, seized the remains of the delicious dish, and examined the food to determine whether it contained any dangerous substances …

• An Arab man tried everything he could to return to his house in Brooklyn after his wife reported him to the police. She made him sign a paper to prevent him from going home where he would show up drunk at 4:00 am every morning, begin shouting and screaming, wake up his kids, start to beat them, and then take away their allowances.
