Egypt in the News on 4 February 2020

The fourth anniversary of the murder of Italian PhD student Giulio Regeni is getting ink in an otherwise quiet morning for Egypt in the international press, with the Guardian reporting that Italian prosecutors are hoping that a parliamentary inquiry will produce new information.

Also getting attention in the foreign press:

  • Minya could soon be back on the global tourism map, says Voice of America, which ran yesterday a series of images of landmarks, and ongoing excavation and restoration works in the Upper Egyptian province.
  • The Guardian reviewed Egyptian-American writer Rajia Hassib’s second novel, which explores how Rose — an Egyptologist who left Cairo for a postdoc in New York — finds herself embroiled in the mysterious death of her sister, Gameela.
  • Regional rivalries: Egypt’s recent antagonisms with Turkey and Ethiopia is making our neighborhood an “arena for international competition,” says the Arab Weekly.
