Charges against four Irish in Egypt 'ludicrous'
The sister of the four Halawa siblings being held in custody in Egypt has described the charges facing them as "ludicrous".
The three sisters and their teenage brother from Dublin are expected to be held for another two weeks as an investigation continues into charges including attempted murder and arson.
The family were arrested as they took refuge in a mosque in Cairo last week after violence broke out between security forces and the Muslim Brotherhood.
It comes as EU Foreign Affairs Ministers meet in Brussels later to discuss the ongoing crisis in Egypt - and whether or not to cut aid.
Nusayba Halawa insists her sisters and brother have done nothing wrong.
