Egypt in the News on 11 February 2021

It’s a mixed bag of nuts in the foreign press: On the rights front, Amnesty International is wagging its finger at the UK government, saying it hasn’t done enough to support human rights defenders in Egypt and six other countries during the covid-19 pandemic. The Long Island City Post takes note of a New York mural that will feature late Egyptian-American Moustafa Kassem, who died on hunger strike in prison in Egypt after being detained during 2013 protests. Reuters, meanwhile, is out with a heartwarming story about a 12-year-old teaching neighborhood children during school closures.

For the 10th anniversary of the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak after widespread protests, Foreign Policy is out with a piece comparing President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s policies to those of Mubarak.
