Other international coverage

Other coverage worth noting in brief:

  • Egypt’s economic problems are similar to Turkey’s, Patrick Werr writes in The National. “The two neighbours are at odds with one another, but with remarkably similar turbulent financial histories – and in both cases, with no clear path to long-term economic stability,” he writes.
  • The Ikhwan’s prejudice against Coptic Christians is one of the driving forces fueling terror attacks on the nation’s largest minority group, writes Sonia Farid for Al Arabiya.
  • Egypt’s reaction to the Minya massacres had to be strong to match the severity of the act, writes Emil Amin for Asharq Al-Awsat.
  • The fact that all bars and liquor stores close down in Egypt during Ramadan has reignited the debate on whether such “bans are hypocritical, discriminatory and detrimental to tourism,” Rami Galal writes for Al Monitor.
  • Egypt’s transgender community is suffering and its members continue to live “hidden lives,” Aya Nader writes for Foreign Affairs.
