Historical Greek Cemetery located in none other than Alexandria

Monday’s train incident is leading the conversation on Egypt in the foreign press: A train conductor accused of causing the death of a man named Mohamed Eid Attia and inflicting injuries on another has been arrested, the Transport Ministry said in a statement. The official reportedly forced both men to jump out of a moving train after discovering they didn’t have a ticket. Minister Kamel El Wazir paid a visit to the 23-year-old victim’s family yesterday, according to a separate statement seen by the press. The Associated Press, BBC and the National all picked up the story.

Other stories worth noting in brief include:

  • A piece of Greek History in our very own backyard: The Greek City Times is bringing to light the historical Greek cemetery in Alexandria, home to the beautiful tombs of many prestigious Greeks.
  • Entrepreneur profiled one of the founders of the tuk tuk ride-hailing app, Halan, and discussed its expansion into various markets, their funding ventures, and future partnerships.
