The appearance of a "jinn" in an impostor's house in Egypt ignites the communication sites, and the Ministry of Interior responds

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Activists on social media circulated pictures that they said date back to the moment the jinn appeared in Egypt, which sparked a wide interaction, which prompted the Egyptian Ministry of Interior to respond.

The Ministry of Interior said in a statement attached to the circulated photo: "There is no truth to what was circulated on some news sites regarding the appearance of a 'jinn' on top of the house of a charlatan during the burning of the house in Ismailia Governorate."

The Ministry of Interior continued: "The truth of the incident is that on August 30, 2022, the residents of Qantara West Police Station reported that a person walked naked, in a state of agitation, and threw stones at passersby, holding a white weapon and a knife in his hand, and as soon as the people tried to calm him down. He put the dolphin inside his house and set it on fire."

And she added, "Immediately, the security services moved to the scene of the incident and it was possible to control the limited fire at the entrance to the house, and to apprehend the perpetrator of the incident and the white weapon in his possession. It turned out that he was 'psychologically shaken'.. Legal measures were taken at the time."
