Egypt joins Saudi military drills alongside regional allies

IN DIPLOMACY: Egypt’s air force and navy are taking part in joint military drills in Saudi Arabia alongside troops from the kingdom as well as the UAE, Jordan and Oman, Saudi state news agency SPA reports. This comes as Egypt holds separate drills with the UAE until 30 June.

FROM THE REGION- Lebanon’s central bank chief Riad Salameh is under mounting pressure after French prosecutors began investigations into allegations he helped to launder money, AFP reports. This follows a similar probe opened by the Swiss attorney-general in April, which is looking into claims that Salameh and his brother embezzled more than USD 300 mn of central bank money.
