Egypt's prosecution referred on Monday belly dancer Salma El-Fouly to a misdemeanor court on charges of "inciting debauchery and immorality", the Ahram Arabic news website has reported.
The charges are related to a "seductive video" uploaded on YouTube last week.
El-Fouly will be detained for four days pending investigations while ehe first court session is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 28 May.
The video titled "Sib Idi", which translates into "Let Go of My Hand" has recorded 600,000 views in less than a week.
An Egyptian administrative court last Wednesday ordered that the prime minister take the necessary measures to censor pornography websites inside Egypt.
