Other coverage in the international media

Also worth noting in brief this morning:

  • The prosecution and trial of Irish citizen Ibrahim Halawa are “farcical” and have shamed Egypt by falling “far short of acceptable international standards,” The Irish Times says.
  • The threat of Daesh in the Sinai and its potential ramifications on the border crossing with Israel, is being looked at in an analysis by I24.
  • The attack on tourism in HRG raises the inevitable question of whether the incident will bring slowly recovering tourist numbers to a sputter, Al-Arabiya English says.
  • The influence of Daesh? The recent uptick in “lone wolf” terror attacks against Egypt’s Coptic Christians, police force, and tourists comes in response to calls from Daesh to carry out individual operations while flying under the radar, security experts tell Asharq Al Awsat.
  • The Agriculture Ministry rejected animal breeder Salah Talaba’s offer to rent and manage the Giza Zoo for EGP 10 mn a year, saying the zoo must remain affordable, according to Al-Monitor.
