Two Canadians being held in Egypt have launched a hunger strike in protest at their incarceration without charge, a family member told AFP on Wednesday.
John Greyson is a Toronto filmmaker and university professor, and Tarek Loubani is an emergency room doctor from London, Ontario.
The men were detained last month soon after trying to enter Gaza, where Greyson was scouting for a documentary and Loubani planned to help train local doctors. But they were turned back at the Gaza border and later arrested in Cairo.
