Political Crisis In Egypt

Oct 9, 2013 — Sisters Nagwa, Dina and May had always been close — until now. The political crisis in Egypt has ripped apart their relationships.

Jul 16, 2013 — Some of Egypt's liberal politicians are worried that they've allied with the enemy against the ousted president. After the January 2011 revolution, the military ruled during the transitional period for 18 months, when hundreds were killed in protests.

Some say there is a danger that Egypt's deep state will take hold again and turn the nation back into a police state. But they are still squarely in the minority.

Jul 12, 2013 — Ahmed Assem has become the poster child of what Muslim Brotherhood leader's are calling a massacre — last Monday's assault by security forces on angry Islamist protesters. Assem was a photographer who filmed his own death. An army sniper shot him down. The killing has torn Assem's family apart. His brother is a police officer who blames the Brotherhood for the violence, but the family, like Egypt itself, is now deeply divided and unsure what is to come.

Jul 11, 2013 — Egypt's new government must restore stability and security before it can tackle the bigger problems: unemployment, huge fuel and food subsidies, and an overly regulated private sector that has benefited from crony capitalism. But the challenges it faces are not uncommon in the wider Arab world.
