Police prevented a crowd from breaking into a police station in Upper Egypt's Aswan on Wednesday to free a number of detainees held in the building. Police dispersed the crowd with teargas and arrested six of the assailants, reported Al-Ahram Arabic website. The crowd were attempting to free a group detained after being accused of involvement in a fight. According to the report, dozens of the detainees' relatives threw stones at the police station, leading the police to fire teargas. A police conscript was injured in the incident, having sustained bruises to the chest. Attacks on police stations were common in Egypt in the months following the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi last summer. Morsi's Islamist supporters repeatedly faced off with police in deadly clashes. A security crackdown on Islamist groups has gradually decreased confrontations of late. More»

Equipment installed at Cairo's international airport to detect diseases like Ebola in passengers has proven to be defective, as Egyptian pilgrims return in droves from Saudi Arabia, state news agency MENA said on Tuesday. MENA said the defects in the electronic temperature gauges and thermal surveying cameras were discovered upon a visit by Health Minister Adel El-Adawi to the airport premises to check on the pilgrims' arrival. The digital thermometer did not match the temperatures of passengers coming through the airport gates, the agency added. El-Adawi summoned a preventive medicine team to investigate the incident and sent other medical teams to receive the pilgrims. The possibility of catching epidemic diseases is normally raised during the annual Hajj season, when Muslims flock to crowded holy sites in the Gulf kingdom – but fears were especially this year over the fatal Ebola virus, which is spread through human contact. The death toll from Ebola has surpassed 3,870 in over 8,000 infected cases, according to the World Health Organisation. More»

A group of Moroccan hackers reportedly hacked the official website of Egypt’s Al Azhar University in response to the University questioning Morocco’s celebration of Eid al Adha. A group called Kuwat Radea Maghribia, or Moroccan Forces of Deterrence conducted the hacking. It came as a reaction to a Fatwa issued over the weekend by al Azhar scholars questioning the validity of the Eid Al Adha holiday in Morocco. The group left a message on the hacked page calling on Egyptians to address the problems facing their country. A message posted by the hackers says: “Wasn’t it useful for you and your people to address the problem of the bloodbath, murder, poverty, the number of hungry citizen in country, sexual harassment, and killing of souls by your putschist leader? But the hacking of the website did not last more than an hour, as the University’s’ engineers managed to bring it up. More»

British gas producer BG Group said on Monday it had received $350 million from the Egyptian government following a commitment by Cairo to repay outstanding debts to the energy industry. The transaction reduces the energy company's receivables balance in Egypt to around $1.2 billion, BG Group added. "The company continues to investigate options for increasing the supply of gas," it said. The Arab world's most populous country is facing its worst energy crisis in decades as gas production declines and consumption rises. But energy companies have been reluctant to increase investment after the government fell behind on payments. More»

Forty-three thousand tourists arrived at Hurghada Airport during the Eid holiday, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported. The tourists came on 240 flights from various European countries, including the Czech Republic, Serbia, Belgium, Poland and Italy. Hurghada is one of Egypt's top Red Sea resorts. However, it has seen a decline in visitors since the 2011 uprising that has led to political and civil unrest. Egypt's tourism revenue dropped by 24.7 percent to around $3 billion in the first half of 2014 according to a tourism ministry statement in August, a 25 percent drop from the same period a year earlier. However, Tourism Minister Hisham Zaazou said on 15 September that he expects tourism to recover by the end of 2015. The country's tourism revenue once peaked at $12.5 billion a year. However, they have been dwindling to less than half of that amid rising political upheaval and unstable security. The tourism sector suffered another blow in February when a coach carrying Korean tourists was bombed by Islamist extremists. More»

The death toll of Egyptian hajj pilgrims to Mecca has risen to 44, an interior ministry official told state news agency MENA on Tuesday. Major General Shaker El-Kayal said no cases of epidemic or viral diseases had been reported among Egyptian pilgrims. He did not give further details. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims from around the globe travel to Saudi Arabia every year to perform the annual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. The hajj began this year on Thursday. Dozens of pilgrims die during the hajj every year, often caused by to fatigue or crowd stampedes at religious sites. One of the five major pillars of Islam, hajj must be performed at least once in a lifetime by all Muslims who can afford the costly and difficult trip. Saudi Arabia said last week it had received over a million pilgrims from overseas, according to the Saudi News Agency. More»

Egypt's army killed 16 militants from the Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis jihadist group early Tuesday as it continues its operation to rein in extremists in the restive Sinai Peninsula, Aswat Masriya reported. In offensives south of Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah cities in North Sinai, army forces killed 16, injured six others and arrested four members of the group that has claimed responsibility for several attacks on army and police recently. The group had vowed to carry out deadly attacks against security forces during the Eid holidays, coming to an end on Tuesday. A video published on online jihadist forums on Sunday said that Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis had decapitated three people and shot a fourth for "collaborating" with Israel's Mossad spy agency and the Egyptian army. The group published a previous decapitation video of four others in August who they said had provided information that helped an Israeli drone strike kill three of the group's fighters in July. Sinai locals also found several corpses of decapitated men in September. More»

Prosecutors have ordered the detention of two policemen for negligence after a bomb exploded inside a Cairo court, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported. The homemade bomb exploded in the prosecution room, injuring a prosecutor and his secretary. The two officers will be held for four days pending investigations into the incident. The explosion happened while the prosecutor was examining confiscated materials in a case involving sabotage at a telecom centre. Bombings and shootings have surged since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year. Major attacks, mainly targeting security forces and installations, have been mostly claimed by radical Al-Qaida-inspired groups based in the Sinai Peninsula. More»

Marriott International Inc. (MAR) may build 40 to 50 hotels in Nigeria, South Africa and Egypt each by 2020 to benefit from a surge of travelers, said Alex Kyriakidis, the chain’s president for the Middle East and Africa. The plan is to add 10,000 hotel rooms apiece in Africa’s three biggest economies, targeting “super growth” based on their economic potential and tourist attractions, Kyriakidis said today in an interview in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. “We see tremendous growth opportunities in Egypt,” he said. “As Nigeria’s economy powers on, the demand for hotel rooms is going to be substantially greater.” The Bethesda, Maryland-based company sees the region as its highest revenue-growth market to 2020, Kyriakidis said. The owner of brands including Ritz-Carlton and Renaissance is boosting its presence in Africa after purchasing Cape Town-based Protea Hospitality Holdings for about $200 million in April. It will open nine hotels with a total of 1,300 rooms in the next 14 months in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Ghana, Uganda and South Africa, Kyriakidis said. Occupancy rates at the chain’s hotels in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, and at Red Sea resorts have increased to 60 percent to 75 percent from 30 percent to 45 percent since the May election of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, he said. Security concerns in Nigeria triggered by deadly bomb attacks won’t deter Marriott from further investment in the West African nation as the company is planning over the long term, Chief Executive Officer Arne Sorenson said in June. The company is also boosting its presence in the Middle East, where it’s focusing on the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, said Kyriakidis. More»

An Egyptian man was caught in the crossfire and killed in militant clashes in Libya's Benghazi, state news agency MENA reported on Wednesday. On-duty health officer in Benghazi Medical Center Nasser El-Gehani said that Al-Hashemi Ahmed Moftah's corpse had a gunshot wound. Egypt has been concerned with the growing militant insurgency in Libya and both countries announced a plan to disarm the latter's militants and reach stability. There have been a number of recent murders and kidnappings of Egyptian expatriate workers in Libya in recent months, as rival militias and a toothless central government struggle for control. An Egyptian man was killed on 19 September also in Benghazi by unknown assailants. The Egyptian foreign ministry has already issued several travel warnings to its citizens to avoid the conflict-ridden territory. Egypt also organised multiple flights to repatriate several thousand Egyptians who had fled from Libya to Tunisia after escalating violence in July. According to the International Organisation for Migration, between 330,000 and 1.5 million Egyptians worked in Libya until an uprising toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. It is unclear how many Egyptian workers remain in Libya at present. More»
