Egypt satirist Bassem Youssef's TV show suspended

Popular Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef's television show has been suspended - just minutes before it was due to go on air.

Private broadcaster CBC said Mr Youssef had not followed editorial policies and wanted more money.

But the move will raise concerns about freedom of speech, as it came just a week after the show poked fun at the country's powerful military.
