Egyptian prosecutors on Thursday ordered the release on bail of Nora Younis, editor-in-chief of Al-Manassa news website, pending investigation on charges of running a website without a permit.

According to a prosecution statement, Younis is accused of creating a platform to commit and facilitate commission of a legally punishable cybercrime, possessing unauthorised software, and trespassing on the financial and intellectual property rights of the software's rights holder.

She is also charged with utilising the information system network, information technology means, and telecommunications services without merit.

Younis, who was arrested on Wednesday, was required to pay EGP 10,000 (approximately $600) to be released on bail.
