Death of Egyptian policeman tops foreign coverage

Attempted church bombing, house of worship inauguration tops coverage: Topping coverage of Egypt is the death of a policeman who was killed last Saturday while trying to defuse a bomb that was found near a church in the district of Nasr City. The story was picked up by the BBC, the Associated Press, and the UK’s Express. The attack came two days before Coptic Christians celebrated their Christmas yesterday, and a day before President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inaugurated a massive church in the new capital. A number of leading international media outlets took note of the inauguration the day after the attack, including France’s AFP, the BBC, Bloomberg and Euronews.
