Last Night’s Talk Shows: El Sisi lands in Berlin + Subsidized bread prices aren’t changing
The nation’s talking heads had a lot to cover last night between President Abdel Fattah El Sisi landing in Berlin, the future of subsidized bread and the national team making it to the 2022 African Men's Handball Championship final.
El Sisi’s visit to Berlin to co-chair this year’s Petersberg Climate Dialogue received coverage from Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 2:07), Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 4:50 | 1:45) and Al Youm (watch, runtime: 1:04).
There will be no changes to the price of subsidized bread following last week’s diesel price hike, head of the bakeries division at the Cairo Chamber of Commerce Attia Hamad told Salet El Tahrir (watch, runtime: 4:52), adding that the state will bear any additional costs due to the global increase on commodity and oil prices. Neither subsidized or unsubsidized bread will see any increases in prices unless the prime minister or supply minister issue an official statement, he added. We have more on this in this morning’s news well, above.
The final of the 2022 African Men's Handball Championship got plenty of attention: The final will see tournament hosts Egypt play Cape Verde. A victory for the Pharaohs would see the national team claim the trophy for the second year in a row. Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 9:28), Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 36:01) and Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 3:11) all had the story.
