Tunisia leading coverage in the foreign press

The political turmoil in Tunisia is leading coverage on Egypt in the foreign press this morning: The Washington Post’s Claire Parker notes the gleeful reaction of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE to the dissolution of the Islamist-dominated parliament in Tunis, and claims that the three countries have been engaged in social media operations to fuel the recent protests in the country. Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s Bobby Ghosh compares the events to the overthrow of the Morsi government in 2013.

Elsewhere, it’s a mixed bag:

  • Warraq building collapse kills 1: The Associated Press reports that a building collapse in Warraq yesterday left at least one man dead,
  • The Suez Canal, ours for 65 years: The Guardian digs into its archives to commemorate former president Gamal Abdel Nasser’s nationalization of the Suez Canal.
  • La Mancha in the pink paper: The Financial Times is also running a piece on Sawiris-backed La Mancha’s new USD 1.4 bn mining fund, which we covered earlier this week.
