An Egyptian man won a reprieve Friday from US government efforts to deport him to Egypt, where he was convicted in absentia of murdering a woman. A federal judge in Pennsylvania stopped the deportation of Sameh Sami S. Khouzam while the court considers his argument that he cannot be sent back to Egypt because he will probably be tortured.
