Egypt in the news on 31 July 2019

It’s another quiet morning for Egypt in the foreign press. Among the few headlines worth a quick skim:

  • The IMF isn’t helping when it comes to poverty: Egypt’s increasing poverty rate is a byproduct of steps taken as part of the IMF program, Bloomberg says.
  • Two Somali refugees were arrested in Arizona as they prepared to board a flight to Egypt, where they intended to travel to Sinai and join Daesh, the US Department of Justice said.
  • Egyptian agricultural techniques are giving an upstate New York farm an edge. An Egyptian technique to “custom-grow” crops helped Norwich Meadows Farm become one of the most visited by high-end chefs who frequent the Union Square Greenmarket in Manhattan, says the New York Times.
