Egypt in the News on 9 December 2020

Egypt and France will likely cooperate more closely as The Donald exits the White House and President-Elect Joe Biden is expected to take a less forgiving approach to human rights concerns, Bobby Ghosh writes for Bloomberg Opinion. The likelihood of closer ties with France comes after President Emmanuel Macron made it clear that Paris’ cooperation with Cairo on counterterrorism will not be deterred by objections from human rights groups.

Meanwhile: Some 40 terrorists were killed in North Sinai over the past three months in operations by the Egyptian Army (Associated Press) and geothermal hot springs left the ground ablaze in a New Valley village earlier this week (Gulf News).
