Egypt in the news on 26 August 2020

The order to arrest the alleged gang involved in the so-called “Fairmont Incident” is leading the conversation on Egypt in the foreign press this morning, with Arab News and Reuters among those taking note. Al Fanar Media, meanwhile, was out with a story on how victims of [redacted] assault are accusing university administrations of negligence and failing to stamp out harassment.

Elsewhere in the foreign press: Arab News picks up on the idea of a tourism recovery in Egypt in the near term, even with strict measures and requirements that could be cumbersome for travels. Amnesty International was also out with a statement on human rights defender Bahey El-Din Hassan’s sentencing to 15 years in prison.
