Egypt in the news on 23 January 2019

Topping coverage of Egypt in the foreign press this morning is an army statement released yesterday saying that Egyptian security forces have recently killed 59 terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula. The army did not disclose the dates or locations of operations, but did reveal that it lost seven of its own men during the same time period. The AP and Bloomberg also have the story.

Other headlines worth noting in brief include:

  • A British couple will have to pay GBP 7,500 to TUI, Thomson Holidays previously, for having lied about falling ill during a stay at a Sharm El Sheikh hotel despite a TripAdvisor review by them saying they had an “amazing” experience, Daily Mail reports.
  • Countries including Egypt and Ethiopia need to learn to share water equitably and cooperatively as populations keep growing. (Asia Times)
