Flight bookings to Egypt on the rise

It’s a quiet morning for Egypt in the global press:

  • Bookings to Egypt and Turkey from the UK have soared 400% since our removal from the red list, an Easyjet executive says. (The Guardian)
  • A pair of Sphinx statues in a UK couple’s garden were discovered to be genuine Egyptian artifacts dating back some 5k years and have been sold for nearly GBP 200k at an auction yesterday. Antiquities theft? The English? Perish the thought. Certainly nothing more than a perfectly normal mistake to have made, yeah? (Express)
  • Egyptian burn victim Hend El Banna is helping others with her condition overcome stigma through her “Ehtewa’a” (inclusion) association, a charitable organization she runs from Alexandria, Egypt, reports Reuters.
