Egypt in the news on 17 May 2017

Coverage of Egypt in the foreign press is picking up once again this morning, with international outlets offering up a varied assortment of stories. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s phone call on Monday night with Donald Trump is getting some digital ink from the Associated Press, which reminds us again of the two presidents’ blossoming friendship. This comes as CNN’s Elizabeth Mackintosh writes another piece about Trump’s affinity for “authoritarian leaders,” El Sisi included.

Also getting attention from the AP is Poland’s investigation of the death of a 27-year-old Polish woman vacationing in Egypt. The investigation is looking at murder, a nervous breakdown, and human trafficking as possible scenarios leading to the tourist’s death.
