Biden’s “u-turn” on Egypt human rights

No particular subject is dominating the conversation on Egypt in the foreign press this morning: Joe Biden’s “u-turn” over his stance on Egypt’s human rights situation is getting attention in the Guardian, while the AP reports that at least five people, including three engineers, a laborer and their driver have been kidnapped by Islamic State in North Sinai. Meanwhile, an Egyptian defense analyst tells Breaking Defense that Egypt’s recent multi-bn USD arms agreement with France may open the door to more similar sales from France and other European countries.
