SIS apologies for 'All Egyptian' constitution banner

[dropcap style=”2″ color=”#f50a0a” text=”the “]Egyptian State Information Service (SIS) apologised for a spelling mistake in the “All Egyptian” constitution banner at Sunday’s press conference for the constitutional committee, but said criticism of using photos of non-Egyptians was “overblown.”

[blockquote style=”quote” align=”” author=”Amgad Abdel Ghafer, head of SIS”]We apologize  for the spelling mistake in the banner; we did not revise the banner before it was hanged because we received it shortly before the start of the press conference as a gift from the Egypt Peace Lovers organisation [that organized the press conference].[/blockquote]

The Egypt Peace Lovers is a non-governmental group helping the Egyptian government to promote the newly-revised constitution.
