Twenty-seven killed in attacks in Egypt's North Sinai, Suez

CAIRO (Reuters) - Twenty-seven people were killed in four attacks in Egypt's North Sinai and Suez, security and medical sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence in months and after commemorations around the anniversary of the 2011 uprising turned deadly this week. Egypt's government faces an Islamist insurgency based in Sinai and growing discontent with what critics perceive as heavy handed security tactics. Thursday's first attack was a bombing of military buildings in the capital of North Sinai province, that killed 25 and wounded at least 58, including 9 civilians, security and medical sources said #facebook #United States #India #Egypt #Brazil #Technology #Russia #United Kingdom #author #opinion #article

Egypt minister says pardon still possible for Al Jazeera journalists

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi could still pardon three jailed Al Jazeera journalists who are now facing a retrial if he deems it appropriate, the country's foreign minister said on Tuesday. Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy, Egyptian Baher Mohamed and Australian Peter Greste were sentenced last June to seven to 10 years for spreading lies to help a "terrorist organisation" - a reference to Egypt's outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Sisi said in November the issue of a presidential pardon was under discussion #facebook #United States #Egypt #Technology #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Argentina #author #opinion
