Egypt’s capital: The crack in the ceiling
Cairo – The crack of a ceiling window in Cairo’s main Tahrir Square.
It’s the second crack of the year.
The Egyptian capital is a sprawling, complex metropolis.
The skyline is littered with skyscrapers, while the city’s streets are lined with mansions, hotels and even luxury flats.
Its streets are packed with people – it’s one of the world’s most densely populated urban areas.
At the centre of the city lies a vast, dark, almost cavernous labyrinth of residential and commercial districts, known as the Red Sea, whose name means “river of the dead”.
Its main thoroughfare, the Nile, is an almost continuous labyrinth of roads and highways.
Egypt’s capital is also the world capital of the Middle East, the most populous country in the region.
It has an estimated 1.8 billion people, of which more than half are Muslims, who make up the vast majority of Egypt’s population.
They live in the desert, in the deserts and in the hills.
Since the Egyptian revolution that overthrew the country’s longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak, millions of people have fled their homes and gone to the capital to escape the war and political turmoil.
As the country braces for the first major military coup since Mubarak’s overthrow, it is not only the capital of Egypt but also the countrys largest city, Cairo, which is home to many of the country s largest businesses and the largest population of Christians.
For years, the country has been a source of tension for its neighbours and its Arab neighbours.
Over the past year, the Egyptian military has launched a series of strikes against the country – targeting senior military figures, senior political figures and leading businessmen.
These strikes have targeted several major industries and have been met with harsh criticism from Western governments and human rights groups.
But the biggest hit to the economy of Egypt has been the destruction of the Egyptian Red Sea coastline and the impact it has had on shipping in the Mediterranean.
With a population of some 2.5 million people, the Red Seas is Egypt’s third-largest commercial and industrial area after the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Nile.
The Nile is Egypts fourth-largest estuary and is considered one of its most important waterways.
“The impact of the Red sea on the economy is quite massive,” said Hani Abdel Rahman, a lecturer at the Egyptian University of Technology in Cairo.
He said that the destruction has affected the economy and made it harder for Egypt to attract foreign investment.
Some of the largest ports in the Red seas, such as Port Said in the Sinai Peninsula, were forced to close down and there was also a decrease in foreign investment in the country, according to Abdel Rahman.
Even though Egypt has its problems, Abdel Rahman said that in terms of economic growth, the economy has already grown enough to compensate for the loss of the sea.
‘The sea is our capital’Egypt has a long history of colonialism and the occupation of its southern neighbour, the United Arab Emirates, by the Ottoman Empire.
In 1922, Egypt declared independence from the Ottoman empire.
Under the Ottoman rule, Egypt became a major military power and became the second Arab nation to declare independence.
On the surface, the peninsula has long been a major trading hub and trade route for the region, including Egypt and Egypt’s neighbors Syria and Iraq.
During the 1970s, Egypt’s military ruled the country for nearly 50 years.
It was a dictatorship.
Following the fall of the authoritarian regime, Egypt began to transform itself into a modern democracy.
More than two million Egyptians are now members of parliament.
After the uprising in 2011, the military was ousted and the military-backed government replaced by a democratically-elected civilian government.
Despite the democratic transition, the army continues to rule.
Abdel Rahman said the military has become a powerful force in the economy, especially in the port of Suez, a port which has been used for decades to smuggle illicit goods into Egypt.
I have been in Suez for 25 years and I have never seen anything like it,” he said.
This is a war zone, so it is really sad to see the destruction.
Hani Abdel Hamid is a lecturer in political science at the Cairo University of Economics and Political Science.
He is a former member of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to peaceful assembly and expression.
He said the Egyptian armed forces have not been very effective in the war on terrorism, particularly in terms for economic development.
And that has led to the destruction and the loss to the national economy of some of the most important areas in the capital city of Cairo, he said, adding that the economy would likely shrink as a result of the military rule.
