(Associated Press) A court in Egypt has ordered a TV channel that airs belly dancing clips off the air for showing “sexually explicit” content and operating without a broadcast license.

The judge Saturday said that ElTet airs ads that are “offensive” and can “arouse” viewers. The station carries advertisements for sexual enhancement products and matchmaking services.

It is broadcast out of a Cairo apartment that airs videos 24 hours a day of scantily clad belly dancers giving sultry performances to music.
