Egypt’s Al-Azhar university on Sunday said it had expelled a female student after she appeared in a video hugging a male colleague, accusing her of undermining the school’s reputation.

The video, which went viral earlier this month, showed a young man carrying a bouquet of flowers kneeling before a young woman and then hugging her in what appeared to be a marriage proposal.

The video was apparently not filmed at Al-Azhar — a branch of Egypt’s highest Sunni Muslim authority — but at another establishment, Mansoura University in the country’s north.

Egypt has been announced as the host of the 2019 African cup of nations which will hold between June 15 and July 13 after Cameroon was stripped of the hosting right due to delay and slow pace of event preparations.

This was announced by Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmed Ahmed in Dakar on Tuesday after Egypt 
received more votes from the executive committee than South Africa. 

This will be the fourth time the event will take place in Egypt after hosting in 1974,1986 and 2006
