Driving the international conversation on 28 August 2016

Driving the conversation about Egypt in the international press this morning is driven largely by wire coverage, including Ahmed Moussa abandoning Twitter after the flop of his poll on whether the president should seek a second term; the execution by Daesh of a police driver in Sinai (with images of the murder posted in Twitter); and Reuters’ look at what the Welspun “Egyptian cotton” scandal means for the industry.

Our favourite story about Egypt this morning is really about New York: The New York Times reviews Gyro96, a popular micro-storefront eatery on East 96th St. in East Harlem run by Mansoura’s Waled Haredy. The 85 square foot shop is wedged between a brow salon and a smartphone dealer, the piece tells us. Read “Two New Stops for Middle Eastern Food: Dizengoff and Gyro96,” including six images in a photo gallery just on Gyro96.
