Fire at El Marg detention facility kills 6, injures dozens

It’s a mixed bag in the foreign press this morning: Haaretz suggests that, with diplomatic efforts failing to produce a breakthrough, the GERD dispute could produce a regional conflagration, while the Associated Press carries a report of a fire at an El Marg juvenile detention center at the weekend, which it says killed six children and left more than two dozen injured. El Nasr Automotive's partnership with China's Dongfeng is being championed by Clean Technica as providing a possible model for other countries looking to boost domestic auto manufacturing, while the National picks up the news that Evelyne Porret — the Swiss artist who founded Tunis village’s pottery school in Fayoum and was credited with introducing the craft to the village — passed away last week at the age of 81.
