Last Night’s Talk Shows: Houthi attack at Abu Dhabi + omicron in Egypt get airtime

It was a quiet night on the airwaves last night, with covid-19 and yesterday’s attack at Abu Dhabi Airport getting most of the attention. El Hekaya (watch, runtime: 5:54) and Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 2:02) covered the events in Abu Dhabi, where three people were killed and six injured in an attack at the airport by Yemen’s Houthi group. Emirati Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan condemned the Houthi attack as an act of terror in a statement out late last night.

On the covid front, presidential health advisor Mohamed Awad Taj El Din attributed the recent rise in cases to the omicron variant in an interview on Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 9:31).
