Another quiet day for Egypt in the int’l press

It’s another quiet day for Egypt in the int’l press, with coverage dominated by Ethiopia and World Cup. Coverage of Egypt in the foreign press remained squarely focused on positive developments on the Ethiopian front and the World Cup opener against Uruguay in just a few days’ time.

Other headlines that might be worth a minute or two of your time this morning:

  • An Algerian-made short film highlights “joblessness, corruption and inequality” in Egypt and other countries in the region “after Arab Spring optimism turned sour,” Salah Slimani and Caroline Alexander write for Bloomberg.
  • Egypt-born NBA prospect Anas Mahmoud wants to see basketball growing in popularity in Egypt, according to Rolling Out.
  • Egypt’s water desalination and purification methods may be in need of an upgrade, suggests a study cited by Middle East Online.
