    Mohamed Ibrahim Soliman, Egypt's former housing minister, has been arrested on corruption allegations, becoming the latest member of the former Mubarak government to be detained over allegations regarding deals worth billions of dollars.

    Much less publicised in Egypt, however, are the cases of political activists who have been detained since the fall of Hosni Mubarak.

    Many have been charged with spreading "false information" and insulting the country's powerful military, which currently controls the state.

    Zeina Khodr reports on one such case from Cairo.
