Other coverage in the international media

Other coverage worth noting in brief:

  • Egyptians and other expats in Saudi Arabia will have to pay a levy for dependents of foreign workers, Amira Sayed Ahmed writes for Al-Monitor. It starts at SAR 100 per dependent in 2017, increasing to SAR 400 in 2019 and 2020.
  • A publication called Sight says Christian women are facing “attacks and even abduction in Egypt.” It says the situation is especially difficult in Al Khosous, near Cairo.
  • Middle East Eye has what it claims are three steps to defeating our Daeshbag problem.
  • Egyptians are feeling green, but it’s not envy — it’s something in the ta’ameya. BBC has the scoop.
  • Xinhua has picked up news on the sentencing to death of eight Ikhwan members after convictions stemming from an April 2015 attack on a police station in Damanhour.
