Egypt’s new capital symbolizes El Sisi’s vision for the country

It is a mixed bag of nuts for Egypt in the international press this morning, with no single story driving the conversation and the echoes of mummies (and of the export of stray dogs and cats) still ringing in the air. Among the very few pieces worth noting:

  • Writing for the Carnegie Endowment, analyst Michele Dunne really doesn’t like the new capital (likening it to Baghdad’s “Green Zone”) or much else about the state of affairs in Egypt.
  • The grand mufti is still upset that women could inherit in Tunisia on terms equal to men
  • The Education Ministry suspended a teacher who made headlines by bullying an elementary school student and singling her out for the color of her skin, Asharq Al Awsat reported.
