The Egyptian militant group, Ajnad Misr, claimed responsibility on Saturday for a blast that killed one police officer in Cairo. The bomb exploded in Cairo's Lebanon Square on Friday night, killing the officer and wounding another. Ajnad Misr, or Soldiers of Egypt, said in a statement on an Islamist website that its militants had monitored a police checkpoint in the square before detonating the bomb. The group formally announced itself in January saying it would target "criminal elements" in the military-backed government. It has claimed at least six attacks since then, including explosions outside Cairo University which killed a police brigadier-general and one other person earlier this month. In a separate attack, early on Sunday, a police officer was killed on the Suez-Cairo road after being fired at by unknown assailants, the state news agency reported. Islamist militants have stepped up attacks on members of the security forces, killing hundreds, since the army toppled Egypt's first freely elected President Mohamed Morsi in July. The insurgency threatens national security ahead of a presidential election in May, as well as the vital tourist industry. Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri gave his blessing, in a recording released on an Islamist website on Friday night, to Jihadists in carrying out attacks against the army and security forces in Egypt. Al Qaeda is not believed to be linked to Ajnad Misr. More»

Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef’s show, hosted on MBC Misr satellite channel, will not be broadcast until 30 May so that “Egyptian voters’ orientation and public opinion won’t be influenced.” A statement on the Saudi-owned Egyptian channel's website said that El-Bernameg, Bassem's show, would take an extended break on top of the two-week annual hiatus Youssef had earlier announced. The channel said it was committed to the electoral process running smoothly, as well as respecting the process itself. Egypt’s first round of presidential elections is scheduled to take place on 26 and 27 May. More»

Authorities at Cairo International Airport on Friday prevented head of the Islamist Labor Party Magdi Hussein from leaving Egypt on a flight to Turkey, Al-Ahram's Arabic news website reported. Hussein, a staunch supporter of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, is also a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood-led National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL). The Islamist figure was also an outspoken critic of autocratic president Hosni Mubarak, under whom he served a two-year prison sentence for entering Gaza illegally through a cross-border tunnel. Security forces have cracked down on the Brotherhood and their Islamist allies since Morsi's ouster. Thousands have been imprisoned and hundreds killed in clashes with security forces. More»

Egypt's state security court on Saturday stepped down from the case against the Jordanian, Bashar Ibrahim Abu-Zeid, accused of spying for Israel's Mosaad. The case was referred to the Cairo Appeals Court to assign the case to another court. Abu-Zaid, a Jordanian communications engineer, is charged with planting communication networks in Egypt and using them to spy on Egyptian officials in exchange for payment from Mossad, Israel's national intelligence agency. The Israeli official in the case, Ofer Haray, is being tried in absentia. Abu-Zaid was arrested in Egypt in 2011 and was referred to court in August of the same year. More»

Egypt's prosecutor-general on Saturday referred 25 defendants to court on charges of torturing two members of the Tamarod (Rebel) campaign in January of last year. The 25 are accused of kidnapping and torturing the victims for organising and participating in demonstrations in Upper Egypt's Minya against the now ousted president Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood. The Tamarod campaign played a leading role in building up the 30 June protests that led to Morsi's ouster. The prosecutor-general's statement said forensic examination revealed that one of the victims had suffered permanent damage due to the torture. Police have managed to arrest seven of the accused. The statement said that the accused are members of the Brotherhood, which it classified as a terrorist group. The Brotherhood was deemed a terrorist organisation by interim authorities last December, a designation later upheld by a court order. More»

A police officer and a conscript were killed after armed attackers opened fire on their patrol car, Egypt's interior ministry announced on Sunday, the latest deadly assault against the country's security forces. The deaths come as militants have stepped up their attacks against security forces since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July, and just two days after a police officer was killed in a bomb blast in Cairo. A statement from the ministry said those killed were patrolling the road between Cairo and Suez. A little-known jihadist group, Ajnad Misr, has vowed fresh attacks against security forces. But the deadliest attacks have been claimed by Sinai-based Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, a jihadist group inspired by Al-Qaeda. Official figures show that more than 500 people -- mostly policemen and soldiers -- have been killed in bombing and shooting assaults by militants since July. Most militant attacks have been in the restive Sinai Peninsula, but in recent months brazen attacks have also been launched farther afield in the Nile Delta and in the capital. The authorities blame the Brotherhood for the attacks and have blacklisted it as a "terrorist organisation". More»

Controversial lawyer Mortada Mansour announced on Saturday that he would not run in Egypt's upcoming presidential elections, after having declared his candidacy less than a week ago. Mansour announced last Sunday that he would become the third candidate in the elections after former army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and leftist political figure Hamdeen Sabahi. However, Mansour retreated from his previous stance on Saturday, claiming that his decision to withdraw comes despite having collected 20,000 recommendation forms. He also said he had received a sign from God that El-Sisi would win the race. He went on to slam presidential runner Sabahi – currently the only candidate running against El-Sisi. Mansour was one of several figures from the era of ousted president Hosni Mubarak who was accused of orchestrating the Battle of the Camel, when pro-Mubarak thugs rode camels and horses into Tahrir Square on 2 February, at the height of the 2011 revolution, and attacked protesters, killing 11 and injuring several hundred. He and 24 other Mubarak-era figures were acquitted in 2012 on charges of inciting the violence. Mansour – who was elected head of the Zamalek sports club for the third time on 28 March – has been a controversial figure in Egyptian society since the 1990s, with a resume full of controversial lawsuits as well as public statements. He hosted his own television program on Al-Fareen sattelite channel where he slammed many figures of the 25 January revolution. The channel was closed shortly afterwards, only to resume again. More»

Leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi officially submitted his bid on Saturday to run for Egypt's presidency, making him the second candidate for next month's election alongside former army-chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who is widely expected to win. The election is due to start on May 26-27. Sabahi, who heads a political alliance called the Popular Current, was a member of parliament during ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak's years in office and came third in the 2012 election that was won by Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Sisi, who led the army overthrow of Morsi in July after mass protests against his rule, is widely expected to win the election as he is viewed by many in the country as the savior of the people who can bring stability to Egypt. Sabahi submitted the required documents to the presidential election committee after gathering 31,100 endorsements. The required number of endorsements is 25,000. Sisi submitted his documents last week after gathering 200,000 endorsements. More»

South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has reiterated support for an Ethiopian dam project that has been a source of tension between Ethiopia and Egypt, denying that a recent military agreement between Juba and Cairo was directed at Addis Ababa. Speaking during a meeting with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn on Thursday, Kiir said that a recent visit by South Sudanese Foreign Minister Barnaba Benjamin to Egypt had nothing to do with the Ethiopian dam project. Kiir, who arrived in Addis Ababa on a one-day visit on Thursday, reiterated that his government supports the construction of the Ethiopian dam, according to the Amharic Daily Addis Zemen. Benjamin had visited Cairo in March, where he had held talks with Egyptian and Arab League officials. The visit came shortly after the South Sudanese Defense Minister visited Cairo, where he signed a military cooperation accord between Egypt and South Sudan, a move that sent shockwaves in Ethiopia. The newspaper quoted Hailemariam as saying that Kiir confirmed his country’s readiness to sign the Cooperative Framework Agreement (CFA) – an agreement designed to replace the old colonial accords of the Nile water. The CFA was signed by Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania. The agreement was ratified by the Ethiopian parliament. Ethiopia is building a $6.4-billion dam on the Blue Nile, which represents Egypt's primary source of water. The project has raised alarm bells in Egypt, the Arab world's most populous country, which fears a reduction of its historical share of Nile water. Water distribution among Nile basin states has long been regulated by a colonial-era treaty giving Egypt and Sudan the lion's share of river water. More»

Egypt's irrigation ministry said it was about to conclude studies on the construction of a new dam in Africa's newest state, South Sudan, as part of Egyptian aid pledged to the war-torn country. All the project's hydrological, geological and construction studies have been conducted and a final report will soon be examined by a specialised committee, Egypt's irrigation minister Mohamed Abdel-Moteleb said at a seminar in Cairo on Thursday. The project in the northwestern city of Wau comes as part of the $26.6 million in aid Egypt has pledged to South Sudan since 2011. Projects slated to be carried out by the Egyptian government as part of the assistance include cleansing the Bahr Al-Ghazal River, the chief water tributary of the Nile, as well as setting up a number of river anchorages to link up the country's cities and villages and facilitate shipping. Seventeen groundwater wells and three drinking water wells have already been dug, and three water level measuring stations have been completed in the cities of Malakal, Juba and Wau, according to Abdel-Moteleb. Egypt sent humanitarian aid late last year to Africa's newest state, which has been embroiled by civil war and a resultant humanitarian crisis since it declared independence from Sudan in 2011. Sudan took sides in an ongoing dispute between Egypt and Ethiopia when it backed the construction of giant dam Addis Ababa is building on the Nile near the Sudanese border, a source of concern to Egypt, which fears the hydropower project will hugely affect its water share.
