Egypt seizes 2,000 'Da Vinci Code' DVDs

CAIRO, Egypt - Police seized 2,000 pirated DVDs of "The Da Vinci Code" on Saturday, and the Egyptian Coptic Christian church demanded the film be banned in Egypt. The film has not been shown here and the government has not yet decided whether to permit it. Police arrested the owner of a local movie production company when they discovered he had 2,000 pirated DVDs of the film, a police source said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. The film version of Dan Brown's murder mystery is based around the premise that Jesus and one of his followers, Mary Magdalene, fathered children whose descendants are still alive. [More]
