Housing boom in NAC catches the eye of the foriegn press

On an otherwise quiet morning in the foreign press: The rush to build housing to accommodate civil servants relocating to the new administrative capital is getting attention from Reuters, while ANI is the latest to report on the security situation in North Sinai. Meanwhile an exhibition dedicated to Ramses II will open at the Houston Museum of Natural Science as part of a world tour in November, Culturemap Dallas reports.

ALSO- Two Syrian Youtubers could face legal repercussions in Egypt after sharing a video that showed them “lighting up the Pyramids of Giza” blue to reveal the gender of their baby, Sky News Arabia reports. Authorities said the pyramids are not available for individual use, and that the youtubers had made false claims after shooting their video during the rehearsals of one of the Giza pyramids’ sound and light shows.
