Will the Spanish come running for the Egyptian King?

Will the Spanish come running for the Egyptian King? Mohamed Salah’s central role in maintaining Liverpool’s unbeaten league record so far this season has CNN wondering if the Premier League club will be able to keep the star forward around for much longer. The likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona could soon come for Salah, who has proven he is more than a “one-season wonder,” retired Egyptian footballer Ahmed Hossam “Mido” said.

Other news worth noting:

  • A 53-year-old American citizen who’s currently on a hunger strike in an Egyptian prison is in very dangerous conditions, his family told the Los Angeles Times, urging the US government to take action.
  • The forthcoming amendments to the NGOs Act indicate that the government is either adopting a friendlier approach to civil society or putting on a show,Muhammed Magdy writes for Al-Monitor.
