Qatar, 20 death sentences top coverage of Egypt

On a thankfully slow news day (yes, we cherish those days) on Egypt coverage in the international press, the countdown to Egypt and the GCC’s deadline for Qatar to meet their 13 demands, which we noted yesterday, topped reports. A flurry of pickups of the extension of the deadline emerged in the wee hours of the morning. Most foreign coverage had been focused on Qatar’s defiance, with the Wall Street Journal saying that by rejecting the list of demands, Qatar is facing “a potential volley of new punitive measures” (paywall). Coverage also looked at the downturn in its stock market in the run up to the deadline.

Coming in at a close second are wire pickups of the 20 death sentences handed down yesterday for the Kerdasa police killings.
