Other coverage of Egypt in the International press

Other international coverage worth noting, if you have a moment this morning:

  • Sinai has become a “breeding ground for terror,” Maged Atef writes in Foreign Affairs (paywall).
  • Egyptian-Canadian metal band Massive Scar Era were denied entry to the US toplay in SXSW for having the wrong type of visa, KQED reports. Band member Cherine Amr had a tourist B-1 visa, but was told she needed a P-2 visa. She says it is political.
  • If Pope Francis visits Al Azhar during his proposed trip to Egypt, he will need to make sure that any détente “includes clear insistence that the country’s Christian minority must be protected. Otherwise, local Christians may see the visit as providing cover for their persecution,” John L. Allen Jr. writes in Catholic publication Crux.
  • Many in Egypt still see [redacted] harassment as the woman’s fault, but there are some “encouraging” signs of change, Zvi Bar’el writes for Israel’s Haaretz (paywall).
  • The Sun Ireland is running a plea by the family of Irish citizen Ibrahim Halawa, who they say is dying in prison in Egypt.
  • Reuters is getting in on the “money for garbage” story.
