Egypt in the News on 1 July 2019

Decision to reinstate Amr Warda on Egypt’s national football team tops this morning’s coverage: Amr Warda has been recalled to Egypt’s Afcon squad just two days after being dismissed by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) after accusations of [redacted] harassment. Warda released a video on Facebook, apologizing to family, friends and teammates (but notably not to any of his female accusers). Both the EFA and teammate Mohamed Salah, who defended Warda in a tweet, have come under fire for being harassment “apologists” (BBC | Reuters | The Associated Press | AFP | The Guardian).

Family members of four high-profile Ikhwani detainees say they fear for the health of their parents, following the death of former president Mohamed Morsi last week, Reuters reports. This comes just as Al-Qaida is the latest to crawl out of the woodwork to accuse the authorities of killing Morsi, in a statement released through their media arm, the AP reports.

The web was flooded with Ancient Egypt news this weekend. Linens belonging to ancient Egyptian mummies were seized by US border officialsbetween Michigan and Ontario, Canada, the AP reported. Meanwhile, Parker Richards warns in the Atlantic that the fate of an ancient Egyptian city should serve as a warning, as the threat of rising sea levels increases. National Geographic tells the story of Thutmose III, and asks whether he was ancient Egypt’s greatest military leader.
