Egypt in the News on 4 August 2019

It was a relatively quiet weekend for Egypt in the foreign press. Reuters was out with a special report on Thursday claiming that Egypt’s constitutional amendments were not the brainchild of our esteemed representatives, and were instead created by members of the government in meetings that date back to September 2018.

Other headlines worth a skim:

  • Egyptian workers looking to enter Libya may have better luck in the near future as the two countries work together to ease access to the country, the Arab Weekly notes.
  • Fragments of defaced posters on walls throughout Cairo are a symbol of silenced anger and “the erasure of collective memory,” a piece in Open Democracy argues.
  • A team of researchers will sail a reed boat from the Bulgarian coast to Alexandria to prove that ancient Egyptians were able to make the same voyage 6,000 years ago, the Times reports.
