Also getting considerable ink is the continued detention of Bologna University Graduate student Patrick Zaky, who was arrested earlier this month at Cairo International Airport. Several outlets are picking up wire copies of the story from the Associated Press. Meanwhile, the parents of murdered Italian researcher Giulio Regeni are pressuring the Italian government to intervene in Zaky’s case, reports the Guardian.
