CAIRO - Egypt's former tourism minister Zoheir Garranah was sent to prison for five years for squandering public funds, a judicial source said on Tuesday.

A criminal court issued the prison sentence and a fine after finding Garranah guilty of handing out tourism licenses illegally, the source said.

Garranah was one of many former officials investigated for corruption after the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11 in a popular uprising.
