Egyptian police have arrested a senior civil servant and his wife accusing them of swapping sex partners with other couples, local media reports say. The pair are said to have held at least three "swinger" parties at their home in Cairo, after soliciting other married couples over the Internet. Extra-marital sex is illegal in Egypt, where the constitution says Islamic law is the main source of legislation. Police say they are looking for others who participated in the sex acts. A human rights group, the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, criticized police for snooping on the couples. (BBC)
