Egyptian Court Convicts Jewish Businesswoman

An Egyptian court has convicted a Jewish businesswoman for selling a building to an Egyptian businessman who claimed the structure was not hers to sell.

Carmen Weinstein, a leader of Egypt's tiny Jewish community, was convicted Saturday on charges of fraud, and sentenced to three years in prison. Media reports said that Weinstein supports the Jewish community by managing real estate.
