FILE - In this Sunday, March 31, 2013 file photo, a bodyguard secures popular Egyptian television satirist Bassem Youssef, who has come to be known as Egypt's Jon Stewart, as he enters Egypt's state prosecutors office to face accusations of insulting Islam and the country's Islamist leader in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt's state Investment Authority said Tuesday, April 2, 2013 it will revoke the license of a private TV station that airs a popular satirist if he does not stop the use of "unacceptable and offensive" language. The warning comes two days after the satirist, Youssef, was questioned by prosecutors over accusations that he insulted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and Islam, and a day after the U.S. criticized the Egyptian government for a "disturbing trend" of growing restrictions on freedom of expression.
