Comment on the photo,

Basma Beshe

Basma yelled as she told her friend at the Cairo International Airport that the employee sitting there was unknowingly taking a photo of her.

Just before that, the employee sat on top of an office in the customs area, grabbed the phone, pointed the lens at the passengers, and jumped on foot to see everyone putting bags in the airport cars. This is how Basma begins her story in an interview with BBC Arabic.

Basma Beshai became the heroine of a video clip published while crying while at the airport to help friends, as the clip became the talk of social media after gaining millions of views, and the Egyptian public prosecution and the Cairo airport administration will take immediate action.

Basma tells us what provoked her in this way, which appeared in the video clip, when the employee “calmly dealt with her when she was abused, believing it was impossible to be harmed by the act itself.”
