The Pope and his entourage arrived at Bayan Palace for a lunch with Sabah and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Pope Tawadros' visit, the first to Kuwait, comes at the official invitation of Sabah, who was inaugurated in December 2012. The Pope is accompanied by a delegation of bishops; Bakhomios, Bishop of Beheira, who has served as a preacher in Kuwait before his monastic order; Anba Marcos, Bishop of Shubral-Kheima; and Anba Yusab, Bishop-General of Luxor.

Cairo Criminal Court, headed by Judge Mohamed Sherin Fahmy, sentenced 20 defendants on Monday to death in their retrial, along with 136 other defendants, over storming Kerdasa Police Station in August 2013. The court has set July 2 to issue the final verdict after requesting Egypt's Grand mufti's opinion in the death sentences. The defendants were accused of killing 12 policemen from the police station and two passersby; attempting to murder ten other policemen; destroying the police station; burning police vehicles; and illegally possessing heavy firearms. Last February, the Court of Cassation accepted the appeal of 150 defendants against their death sentence in the case. More»

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Saudi King Salman stressed during talks in Riyadh on Sunday the need to preserve the security and stability of Arab states and to combat attempts to drive a wedge between Arab allies, Egypt's state news agency MENA said. President Sisi landed in the Saudi capital Riyadh on Sunday for a visit to boost ties after months of apparent tensions between the two Arab allies. The Egyptian presidency said Sisi's visit came in response to an invitation by King Salman last month when the two leaders met on the sidelines of the Arab League Summit held in Jordan. The two Arab leaders said they look forward to enhancing cooperation between their countries to face challenges and restore security and stability in the region, referring to the civil conflicts in Syria, Yemen, and Libya.

In his weekly speech on Friday in state-owned TV channel Al-Masreya, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb said. “People and experts feel that there is an organised campaign by some media outlets against Al-Azhar,” Al-Tayeb added. Al-Tayeb claimed that participants in this campaign are divided into two groups. The first consists of those who intentionally campaign against Al-Azhar to help spread lies and false accusations in order to attract a bigger audience without caring about the public interest. He added that the second group consists of those who receive funds to create conflicts between theological dogmas on one side and modern materialistic civilisation on the other in order to implement plots to destroy any authenticity and traditions in Egypt, stating that Al-Azhar was a main target of that.

The Greater Cairo Water Company (GCWC) said that the main water pipe feeding New Cairo city exploded suddenly in the early hours of Saturday. The breakdown of the pipe led to water cuts in districts of Third Settlement and Fifth Settlement. GCWC apologised for the incident. A source in the company told al-Masry al-Youm that vacuum trucks have been pushed to suck the water from the streets, pointing out that the process of fixing and repairing the pipe will take up to 12 hours. The source added that GCWC provided drinking water to meet the needs of citizens who can contact the hotline number 125 to get it in their areas. The General Administration of Traffic conducted traffic detours on the Ring Road, New Cairo, as a result of the water pipe explosion in front of the main door of the Police Academy, which led to the leakage of water to the NB tunnel.

Egypt energy and environment committee of Egypt's parliament will discuss Wednesday a new law aimed at regulating the construction of nuclear power stations in the country. The 19-article draft law, which was revised by the State Council's department of legislation, was sent by the cabinet to parliament Saturday. According to the committee's chairman, Talaat El-Sewedi, the committee will begin discussing the draft law, which is the first of its kind in Egypt, Wednesday. The discussion of the draft law comes after a 16-member Egyptian parliamentary delegation visited Moscow two weeks ago. The delegation from the energy and environment committee, headed by El-Sewedi, held talks with Russia's state-owned nuclear energy giant Rosatom, the company that will construct Egypt's first nuclear power station at El-Dabaa, 130 kilometres northwest of Cairo.

In a joint press conference with his Congolese counterpart at the presidential palace, Sisi said that Egypt will continue to support DR Congo in facing challenges through several initiatives, including the participation of Egyptian forces in a UN mission to help restore stability in the country by supporting the Congolese army in facing armed groups in eastern Congo. "I told President Kabila of our conviction that it is important to have a move by the international community to support efforts to defeat such groups, as well as putting in place effective mechanisms to put an end to the illegitimate exploitation of the Congo's natural resources," Sisi said.

The Egyptian and Russian foreign ministers agreed in a phone call on Friday to meet in Cairo at the end of May, along with the two countries’ defence ministers, an Egyptian ministry spokesman announced in a statement. Ahmed Abu Zeid, the official foreign affairs ministry spokesman, said in a statement that Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov discussed several issues during the call, including enhancement of bilateral relations, the situation in Syria and Libya, and issues on the Security Council agenda which are of concern to both countries. On Saturday, the secretary-general of the Egyptian parliament's environment and energy committee said that Egypt and Russia are close to signing the final contract for construction of the Dabaa nuclear power plant northwest of Cairo. In November 2015, the two countries signed an‎ agreement to build Egypt’s first nuclear power plant at the site on the Mediterranean cost. The construction will be financed by a $25 billion loan from Russia. In March, Russia's top oil producer Rosneft agreed with the Egyptian gas company EGAS to provide Egypt with 10 shipments of liquefied natural gas this year. In February Russia announced the delivery of 50 MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Egypt by 2020. According to Russian state news agency Sputnik, the contract – reportedly initiated after Russian President Vladimir Putin's meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in February 2014 – is the largest order for MiG-29 jets in the post-Soviet era.

U.S. President Donald Trump welcomed on Friday Aya Hegazy, an Egyptian American aid worker detained for three years in Egypt, to the Oval Office after quietly working to secure her release this week. “We are very happy to have Aya back home and it’s a great honor to have her in the Oval Office,” Trump said during a brief photo opportunity less than 24 hours after a government plane landed with her at an Air Force base outside of Washington. Hegazy, who holds dual American and Egyptian citizenship and attended George Mason University in Virginia, was arrested in Egypt in 2014 on charges of child abuse and human trafficking. Human right groups had mocked the charges against Hegazy and her husband, who worked at the Beladi Foundation, a nonprofit organisation that she founded to care for street children in Cairo. Her case had become a symbol for the treatment of aid workers by the government of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Trump’s administration swiftly claimed credit for working behind the scenes to free Hegazy and other aid workers. Charges against the workers were dropped in an Egyptian court last Sunday. Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said Trump directed his national security team weeks ago to work on securing her freedom. Spicer said the president talked privately about her case when he met with Sisi at the White House this month. “We’re just pleased that she’s back home,” Spicer said. “The president and the team successfully worked to have her brought home.” The Oval Office meeting between Trump and Sisi was an abrupt warming in the relationship between the two countries and may have contributed to Hegazy’s release. Former President Barack Obama had refused to allow Sisi to visit the White House because of concerns about his human rights record since assuming power in a military takeover in 2013. Spicer and other government officials declined to be specific about what actions Trump’s government took to get the charges dropped. The verdict in Hegazy’s case was originally scheduled to be heard on March 23, but it was postponed at the last moment until last Sunday, raising the possibility that Sisi might have accepted the warm White House embrace in exchange for a prisoner who was about to be freed by the court system anyway. It was also unclear whether pressure from other sources, including many members of Congress, might have helped to persuade Egyptian authorities to release Hegazy. And while her case had become a focus of international attention, it was not representative of the cases of many aid groups in Egypt that have been shuttered, prosecuted or had their assets frozen by the Sisi government in the past year. Hegazy’s American citizenship and the child abuse charges against her were unique, leading some human rights organisations to worry that other jailed aid workers are unlikely to win release in the same way. Spicer deflected questions about the details of the Trump administration’s efforts, but said that officials worked directly with their counterparts in Sisi’s government. “The national security team, in particular, was working through diplomatic channels to folks in the al-Sisi government,” Spicer said. “Most of this was directly tied to his staff and his actions.” More»
