A puppet is being investigated by authorities in Egypt over claims that it is behind a terror plot.

Puppet Abla Fahita, a widowed mother of two and YouTube star, appeared in an internet ad for the mobile phone operator Vodafone.

Authorities are investigating claims that the ad had encoded messages about a bomb attack, as the Egyptian government cracks down on the Muslim Brotherhood.

The fate of Abla Fahita has caused waves on social media inspiring a number of hashtags like #FreeAbla.
