Egypt’s talk shows: Beirut explosion + EEZ agreement with Greece
It was a relatively insipid night on the airwaves, save for some commentary on Egypt’s EEZ agreement with Greece and some coverage of the latest developments in Beirut, both of which we cover in detail in this morning’s Speed Round, below.
Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit’s meeting with Lebanese President Michel Aoun to visit the site of the blast at Beirut’s port and discuss the situation in the country was on Ala Mas'ouleety's Ahmed Moussa’s radar (watch, runtime: 1:45).
Masaa DMC’s Eman El Hosary took note of the protests that broke out in the Lebanese capital following the blast in demand of accountability and also called up a host of Lebanese celebrities for their two cents on the explosion (watch, runtime: 6:40 and runtime: 5:38).
Back at home, Moussa urged his viewers to continue wearing face masks in public places and warned against falling into “pandemic fatigue” that has caused some to stop taking precautionary measures. Moussa pointed out that daily case numbers are edging back up (watch, runtime: 4:45).
