HURGADA, Egypt, June 4 (UPI) -- Authorities in Egypt said 12 Georgian tourists and their translator were released after investigators determined they had not been filming a porn movie.

Hurgada police said a Navy patrol reported the tourists had been filming a pornographic movie Saturday on their charter boat at the al-Gaftoun resort, al-Masry al-Youm reported Tuesday.

The group was arrested but they were released Monday after police determined their cameras contained only souvenir photos instead of pornographic clips.
