Turkey strongly condemned the Friday terrorist attacks in Egypt’s heavily-populated Haram district which killed six policemen and injured three others, a Turkish foreign affairs statement read. The statement conveyed the Turkish “condolences to the friendly people of Egypt,” and wished a speedy recovery to the wounded. A little-known Egyptian militant group called "Hasm" ("Resolve") claimed responsibility for the bomb attack on the security checkpoint. The "Hasm" group has claimed a number of attacks on police checkpoints in the past couple of months. Attacks against security forces have become common in recent years but are concentrated in North Sinai, where Egypt's army and police are battling an entrenched Islamist insurgency. Relationships between Egypt and Turkey have been strained since Ankara emerged as one of the most vocal opponents of the Egyptian authorities following the 2013 ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi—a close ally of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

Egypt will open the Rafah border crossing over Saturday, Sunday, and Monday in both directions to facilitate the entrance of “humanitarian cases”, the Palestinian embassy in Egypt said. This comes as after the approval of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, state-owned news agency MENA reported. The border has been officially closed since 24 October 2014, following attacks on the Qarm Al-Qawadis checkpoint by “Sinai Province”. The militant group killed at least 33 military personnel. Since the attacks, the crossing has only been opened in exceptional cases, or to allow for humanitarian cases to pass. Egyptian authorities have, for the most part, kept the Rafah border crossing shut down since July 2013. They launched a campaign to destroy the illegal, underground tunnels which have been vital in supplying Gaza residents with food, medicine, fuel and building materials. Another method used by the Egyptian army is flooding the tunnels –  a method often condemned by the Hamas movement, the quasi ruler of the Gaza Strip. Last Sunday, four Palestinian workers died when a tunnel was flooded between Gaza and Egypt. The incident was condemned by Hamas. More»

Six police officers were killed Friday morning in an explosion believed to the be result of an IED stationed next to two security roadblocks in Al-Haram street in Giza. The Ministry of Interior said that deaths included two officers, one non-commissioned officer, and three conscripts. Another three conscripts were wounded in the bombing. The bombing took place before the Friday prayers, when streets are usually quiet. Al-Haram street is one of Giza’s most populated and heavily crowded roads. The bombing caused a severe change in traffic movement, causing congestion in other areas. Police and explosive experts have been investigating the scene. While no militant group has declared responsibility of the attack so far, the most active militant group in the last three months is Hasm, which claimed to have killed and targeted several police and army personnel.

Egyptian women's rights advocate Azza Soliman was freed on bail late on Wednesday after being accused by an investigating judge of establishing an illegal entity and receiving foreign funding to harm Egypt, her foundation and fellow activists said. Soliman, founder of the Center for Egyptian Women's Legal Assistance (CEWLA), was freed after paying a 20,000 pound ($1,000) bond, the organisation announced on Twitter. She had been detained by police earlier in the day. There was no immediate comment from the Interior Ministry. Soliman did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Egyptian human rights defenders say they face the worst government clampdown in their history, with active members and groups accused of fomenting unrest during the 2011 uprising that ended Hosni Mubarak's 30 years in power.

Egypt's annual urban consumer price inflation soared in November to 19.4 percent from 13.6 percent in October, the official CAPMAS statistics agency announced on Thursday, in its first report on price rises since the flotation of the currency last month. It said in a statement that food and beverage inflation reached 21.5 percent in November. Egypt abandoned its currency peg to the U.S. dollar on Nov. 3 in a dramatic move that has since seen the currency depreciate by roughly half. More»

Egyptian police arrested prominent women's rights advocate Azza Soliman on Wednesday, her foundation and a security source said, weeks after she was banned from travel and had her assets frozen. Soliman, founder of the Center for Egyptian Women's Legal Assistance (CEWLA), was one of a number of activists, lawyers and journalists prevented from leaving Egypt in the last month. The rights lawyer told Reuters last week that she was turned back on Nov. 19 at Cairo airport. Soon after, Soliman discovered that her personal assets and those of her group had been frozen. "The investigative judge has issued an arrest warrant against Azza Soliman," CEWLA said in a tweet, adding that security forces had gone to Soliman's house and taken her away to a Cairo police station.

Egyptian prosecutors investigating the murder of student Giulio Regeni gave their Italian counterparts a pile of new documents on Wednesday, but there has been no breakthrough in the case, a judicial source said. "Frankly we hoped for something more," said the Italy-based source with direct knowledge of the case, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Regeni, who was doing postgraduate research into Egyptian trade unions, was last seen by friends on Jan. 25. His body, showing signs of extensive torture, was found in a ditch on the outskirts of Cairo on Feb. 3. Egypt has rejected suggestions from human rights groups that Egyptian security services appeared responsible for the 28-year-old's death. Italy has constantly complained about the slow progress in the investigation and in April withdrew its ambassador in Cairo in protest. More»

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry is in talks with Yemeni officials to secure the release of 49 Egyptian expats who were detained last week in Yemen’s capital city of Sana’a, according to a statement on Monday. Various media outlets reported on Sunday that the Egyptian nationals had been kidnapped by Houthi rebels. The reports were based on testimonies given by the families of the kidnapped Egyptians to the ministry; however, the ministry has refuted the allegations. The ministry added that the 49 Egyptians worked in different sectors in Yemen and had lived in the city of El Hedida several years ago. The Foreign Ministry’s official spokesperson noted that the Egyptian ambassador in Yemen Youssef El Sharqwai has been holding talks with Yemeni officials, under order of the ministry, to secure the release of all 49 Egyptians.
