Egypt’s maltreatment of security dogs from the US tops coverage

Egypt’s alleged maltreatment of security dogs from the US leads coverage: The top story on Egypt in the foreign press this morning is that the US Department of State is no longer sending us explosive-detecting dogs after three of 10 dogs sent to Egypt died from maltreatment. One dog reportedly suffered from lung cancer, while one died from a ruptured gallbladder and the third from heat stroke. Jordan, too, will no longer be sent bomb-sniffing dogs under the program.

Diversity of our tourism offerings get props from Conde Nast: On a more positive note, influential travel magazine Conde Nast’s Anthony Sattin highlights the destinations and experiences Egypt has to offer beyond the capital city. Sattin also gives credit where it’s due to former Tourism Minister Rania Al Mashat’s ambitious Egyptian Tourism Reform Program.
