Other international news worth noting in brief

Other stories worth a glance this morning if you’re so inclined:

  • The AFP’s Mona Salem looks at an NGO’s effort to obtain birth certificates for street children as a first step toward helping them access government services.
  • The Red Sea Riviera is a unique attraction in Egypt, Sudipta Dev writes for India’s Financial Express. Dev reviews Red Sea attractions including Sahl Hasheesh, Makadi Bay, and Gouna.
  • London-based Al Hayat (Arabic) has a meandering, borderline useless look at Egypt’s media and advertising scene, keyed (of course) to Ramadan.
  • Emirati writer Ali Ebeid wrote in UAE’s Al Bayan (Arabic) that recent studies showed that a large segment of Arab youth depend mostly on television for their religious education and are largely ignorant about concepts including the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
