    Egyptian military prosecutors have extended the detention of a prominent activist and blogger, pending investigations into accusations that he incited violence and attacked military personnel during deadly protests.

    The extension, announced on Sunday, will add 15 days to Alaa Abd El Fattah's previous sentence of 15 days, which was handed down on October 30 after he refused to be interrogated by a military prosecutor.

    Ragia Omran, lawyer for Abd El Fattah, spoke to Al Jazeera's Ghida Fakhry about the case.
