A U.S. citizen who lives in Massachusetts has been arrested on a trip to the United Arab Emirates and faces possible extradition to Egypt after he made a video calling on Egyptians to protest during the recent U.N. climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh. The 46-year-old Sherif Osman is a former Egyptian Army officer who has become a vocal critic of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Osman was arrested by two plainclothes officers in UAE on November 6, two days after he arrived from the United States.
