Egyptian censors have reportedly banned the recently-released Hollywood movie "Exodus: Gods and Kings", claiming it "contains historical inaccuracies."
The Ridley Scott-directed epic stars Christian Bale as Moses and follows the biblical story of the Jews' escape from Egypt. But Egyptian officials have called the film offensive, saying it gives a "Zionist view" on history.
Among the issues raised: an apparent claim that the Jews built the pyramids and the idea that an earthquake caused the Red Sea to part, not a divine miracle.
