20:56 RFI.fr Queiroz brushes off criticism as Egypt eye last 16

The Pharaohs take on Sudan in Yaounde on Wednesday knowing a draw will be enough to send them through to the last 16, where they would face the winners of Group E, and a possible showdown with Ivory Coast. Egypt lost 1-0 to Nigeria in their opening match in Garoua but bounced back to beat Guinea-Bissau by the same scoreline thanks to a goal from star man Mohamed Salah. Queiroz has come under fire for his tactics, with Egypt yet to hit their stride and demonstrate they are capable of ending a 12-year wait for another continental crown. "We're living in a different world (with Covid-19), a different society, a different football," Queiroz told a news conference. "The only thing that didn't change is criticisms for ourselves (coaches)." "The coach can't make a magic situation," he added. "We're doing our best and people on TV or in the media criticise. This is part of the show, we need to be ready for this event." Asked to explain Egypt's strategy and positioning of players, Queiroz

02:40 RFI.fr Salah shows up for Egypt, Nigeria through to Cup of Nations last 16

Salah's first-time finish at the back post in the 69th minute in Garoua got his and Egypt's campaign in Cameroon up and running after they had lost 1-0 to Nigeria in their opening Group D game. However, Guinea-Bissau were left fuming after a stunning 82nd-minute strike by Mama Balde was ruled out following a VAR review. Carlos Queiroz's Egypt, who also hit the woodwork three times, now need only draw their last group game against neighbours Sudan in Yaounde on Wednesday to guarantee safe passage to the last 16. "It was a really tough game and we were a little bit lucky with the foul," Salah admitted to broadcasters. "We have to win our next game now to make sure we qualify and we will do our best to go as far as we can in the tournament." Salah, who had not scored in any of his previous six appearances for Egypt this season, struck the post with just 84 seconds played and Mostafa Mohamed hit the same upright later in the first half. The Liverpool star finally broke the deadlock midway

22:21 RFI.fr Israeli police and Bedouin clash in tree-planting protests

Protesters have held a series of demonstrations in recent days over the environmental scheme in southern Israel's arid desert region, posing a thorny challenge for the fragile coalition government. Bedouin, who are part of Israel's 20 percent Arab minority, have long opposed tree-planting initiatives in the Negev, blasting them as a de facto government land grab in areas they call home. "Police dispersed the demonstrators who blocked a road in the Negev and threw stones at the police," the security forces said in a statement. Thirteen people were arrested in the events, the statement added. An AFP photographer was lightly injured during the clashes. The latest unrest in the decades-long dispute has attracted fresh attention given the make-up of Israel's coalition government, led by right-wing Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Bennett's government counts on the backing from the leader of the Islamist Raam party, Mansour Abbas, whose core political support comes from Bedouin in the Negev.

14:14 RFI.fr Viral Egypt dance video fuels women's rights debate

The brief mobile phone video of Aya Youssef, a 30-year-old primary school teacher, shows her wearing a headscarf, trousers and a long-sleeved top as she dances alongside colleagues, smiling as she enjoys a river cruise on the Nile. But the video, which has been shared widely on social media since it was posted earlier this month, has split opinion. Some critics accuse her of breaching the conservative values of a largely Muslim society -- while others stand firmly with her in solidarity. In recent years, Egypt has witnessed several cases in which women have been subjected to defamation campaigns on social media, stirring angry demands for those responsible to be held to account. It comes as rights groups warn of a broadening crackdown on freedom in the increasingly conservative North African nation ever since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took office in 2014. Youssef, in a recent interview with a private TV channel, said she had been "happy" on the trip and that her moves were

Sixteen people were arrested earlier Wednesday and five officers were lightly wounded in clashes that saw "rioters" throw stones at security forces, police said in a statement.

Bennett's government counts on backing from the leader of the Islamist Raam party, Mansour Abbas, whose core political support comes from Bedouin in the Negev. Abbas told Israel's Channel 12 news on Tuesday that his party will not vote with the coalition unless the tree planting is halted and formal negotiations with Bedouin leaders are launched to seek a compromise. "Trees are not more important than human beings," Abbas tweeted. A

An AFP correspondent saw the activist walk out of Charles De Gaulle Airport outside Paris with his French wife, Celine Lebrun. Shaath said finally being free was "a bit overwhelming". "I spent the last two-and-a-half years in between a few prisons, a few forced disappearance spots, some of them underground, some of them solely, some of them with huge numbers of people in a very inhumane way of treatment," he said. His family said earlier that the son of veteran Palestinian politician Nabil Shaath was on his way to Paris, adding that they were "relieved and overjoyed" at his release after 900 days of "arbitrary detention" by the Egyptians.

Shaath, 50, was a figure of the 2011 uprising in Egypt and the coordinator of the Egyptian chapter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. He was arrested in July 2019 and faced charges of aiding a terrorist organisation. In April 2020, he was placed on Egypt's terror list alongside 12 other people. In December, five human rights groups called on French President Emmanuel Macron to pressure Egypt to release Shaath.
