Egypt's Prime Minister Sharif Ismail on Sunday sacked the justice minister after he said in a television interview that he would arrest even "a prophet", a statement from the premier's office said. Ahmed al-Zind faced outrage on social media after his remarks that he would imprison anyone "even if it's a prophet, God's peace and blessings be upon him," using the Islamic saying of reverence spoken by Muslims only when referring to the Prophet Mohammed.
