Egypt's censorship board head resigns in film spat

FILE -- In this Thursday, May 24, 2007 file photo, Lebanese singer Haifa Wehbe arrives for the screening of the film "Ocean's Thirteen," at the 60th International film festival in Cannes, southern France. The head of Egypt’s censorship board says he has resigned after the country’s prime minister overruled his decision to allow a film starring Haifa Wehbe to be shown. Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab said he stopped the film from being shown in response to calls from the National Council for Motherhood and Childhood and “to preserve the morals of our children.” In the film, Lebanese sex symbol Haifa Wehbe has a young boy infatuated with her character.
