Human rights leads the conversation on Egypt in the foreign press

Human rights is topping coverage of Egypt in the foreign press this morning: Amnesty International is calling on authorities to allow regular family visits at Tora’s Aqrab maximum security prison, where some 130 detainees have been on hunger strike for six weeks due to “cruel and inhumane conditions.” A separate Reuters report discusses capital punishment in Egypt, with 3k people having been sentenced to death since 2014.
