EGYPT EXTENDES STATE OF EMERGENCY FOR ANOTHER 3 MONTHS




Mustafa AY – TDO – 17.10.2018 On Tuesday, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi extended state of emergency for another 3 months. The presidential decree was implemented following publication in the official gazette. In April 2017, DAESH organized bombing attacks on two Coptic Orthodox Churches, which left 44 dead. Right after this brutal and inhumane assault unfolded, Cairo was compelled to declare the state of emergency to effectively fight against the worsening terror attacks.
