Egypt in the News on 2 June 2020

It’s another blessedly quiet morning for Egypt in the foreign press. A couple of headlines to keep on your radar:

  • Low-income Egyptians are struggling with the added financial burden of face-masks required by the government in public spaces and transport, reports Reuters.
  • Former detainee sues caretaker PM Beblawi over alleged torture: Former Islamist detainee turned rights advocate Mohamed Soltan has filed a federal lawsuit in the US against former interim prime minister and current IMF executive board member Hazem El Beblawi, age 83, over alleged torture and abuse during his detention in Egypt between 2013 and 2015, the Washington Post reports.
