Cairo: Cairo police arrested a man who allegedly "insulted Islam" in postings on Facebook after they tracked him down through his internet address, state news agency reported on Saturday.
The agency said the 23-year-old, identified only as Ayman YM, posted comments "that were insulting to the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed and Islam and Muslims."

It did not disclose what he allegedly said.

The youth was referred to the prosecution, which may charge him under a law that penalises "insulting religion."
