On The Horizon

Habemus papal visit date: Pope Francis is set to arrive in Cairo on 28 April for a two-day visit, according to an Ittihadiya statement cited by Ahram Online. During the visit, Pope Francis will meet with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II, and has plans to visit Al Azhar. The full program of the Pope’s visit is available through the Holy See.

The parents of murdered Italian graduate student Giulio Regeni have asked Pope Francis to broach the topic of Regeni’s murder and help them uncover the truth during his visit to Cairo this month, ANSAmed reports. The Regenis’ lawyer, Alessandra Ballerini, told the Italian Senate yesterday that she knows that members of Egypt’s police force are responsible for kidnapping, torturing, and murdering Regeni, according to La Repubblica.
