The allegations drew a strong reaction online, with some Egyptians calling for Ms Mazbouh's arrest and lodging a complaint against her.

Lebanese news website al-Modon said in an editorial that Cairo has sent "the clear message that tourists are not welcome in Egypt".

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

In may of this year a tourist recorded a video about your spoiled holiday in Egypt and was soon arrested at Cairo airport while trying to leave the country.

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




"I definitely didn't mean to offend all Egyptians, and never meant to say anything about the country's political affairs", she said.

However, before her detention, Mazbouh apologized for some of her offensive comments in a follow-up video. In addition to the prison term, the woman was sentenced to another fine will have to pay about $ 600.

The 24-year-old was charged with "deliberately broadcasting false rumours which aim to undermine society and attack religions". She was referring to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who activists accuse of limiting civil liberties.

An appeals court will now hear the case on July 29, according to Mazbouh's lawyer, Emad Kamal. "It is in the context of the law, but the court was applying the maximum penalty", he said.

During Saturday's hearing, Mazbouh's lawyer presented medical reports and newspaper clippings indicating that she suffered from brain diseases, which affects her psychological integrity. 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.
