Egypt in the News on 24 March 2021

It’s another mixed bag of nuts for Egypt in the foreign press this morning. American socialist magazine Jacobin (a fringe publication) suggests the preliminary approval of an arms sale to Egypt is evidence the Biden administration is walking back on its vow to take a hard line on Egypt over human rights concerns. Meanwhile, the woman who was allegedly thrown from her balcony to her death is getting attention from the Daily Mail, which described the incident as an “honor killing.” And here to remind us of the (kind of creepy) advancements in technology are African News and the Telegraph, which take note of an AI-powered robot created by an Egyptian mechatronics engineering graduate programmed to carry out medical tasks, including taking PCR swabs, to limit frontline workers’ exposure to the virus that causes covid-19.
