Police save Tamer Husni from fanatical fans
Chaos erupted at the cinema complex in Al Suwais City, Egypt last week during the premier screening of the film “Omar Wa Salma” (Omar and Salma). The film’s star Egyptian singer Tamer Husni arrived at the screening surrounded by four body guards and a task force of police officers to maintain order.
The singer was shocked by the large crowd that amassed to watch the screening, as ticket prices reached as high as 50 Egyptian pounds.
Upon his arrival Tamer entered the theatre via a back door and was escorted to his balcony seat. The singer had to deny numerous requests by fans to be seated next to him.
Once the screening finished, the unwieldy mob of fans prevented Tamer from being photographed and signing autographs.
Female fans rushed towards the singer attempting to touch him, tearing his shirt to pieces and bruising his arms.
Additional reinforcements were then called to the scene to rescue Tamer. The singer was quickly placed in a police car, making a safe getaway.
