Egypt satirist back on air after questioning

Bassem Youssef takes swipes at president Morsi as Egyptians lap up his comeback show.

    Egypt's most controversial comedian is back on the air for the first time since being released on bail on charges of "insulting the president and insulting Islam".

    Bassem Youssef's interrogation has been widely criticised around the world.

    The US state department has said it was concerned about freedom of speech in Egypt.
