Egypt in the News on 31 January 2021

The 10th anniversary of the Arab Spring is getting digital ink in the foreign press: A Bloomberg opinion piece by Timothy Kaldas argues that governments across the region remain vulnerable to political instability, Qantara features Egyptian activists’ reflections on the events of the decade, while the Washington Post looks at the wider region.

Elsewhere: The Telegraph tells its readers to look to Egypt for a post-lockdown holiday, the New York Times has included Ancient Egypt-inspired homeware brand Udjat in its weekly newsletter of editor’s recommendations, and the Guardian has picked up an Amnesty International report on conditions in prisons. Meanwhile, Travel + Leisure reports on the upcoming high-speed train line linking the Red Sea to the Mediterranean, and the kids of an Egyptian immigrant feature in the lede to a New York Times piece on licensing fees for street food vendors.
