Mohamed Ali pledges to unify opposition groups against gov’t

Egypt’s most notorious YouTuber is back in the headlines: Mohamed Ali — ex-army contractor, chain smoker, and attempted revolutionary — has said he wants to unite Egypt’s disparate opposition in London next month to organize against the government. “I am in contact with all political waves, the Muslim Brotherhood, liberals and the April 6 movement,” he told the Guardian, whose diplomatic editor gave him an open platform from which to pontificate.

Also getting attention in the foreign press:
