More criticism coming our way in the foreign press

There’s more criticism in the foreign press this morning, this time coming from the LA Times, which follows the Guardian earlier this week in pointing out the differences in Biden’s campaign rhetoric on human rights and his administration’s relationship with the Egyptian government. This came on the same day that the state-owned Ahram Online published a rebuttal to a piece run in the Financial Times this week about the military’s role in the economy.

Also getting picked up internationally:

  • Back to business in Libya: A number of Egyptian companies are eager to get back to business as usual in Libya as a new unity government and elections later this year raise hopes for an economic recovery. (Reuters)
  • This Egyptian startup is disrupting the undertaking sector: Sokna offers a comprehensive funeral and burial service to clients, claiming to remove the logistical and bureaucratic burdens of burying loved ones. (Reuters)
