Egypt’s state prosecutor killed in Cairo bomb attack

The President of the Arab Republic of Egypt is Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, commonly known as: Sisi. He assumed office: 8 June 2014. As chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces, Sisi ousted President Mohammed Morsi amidst an uprising in 2013, launching a bloody crackdown that left 1,400 dead and 16,000 detained.
As Russian investigators on Tuesday concluded that a bomb caused the crash of a Russian plane in the Sinai Peninsula last month, the regime of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is facing its most severe crisis to date. Other countries have also suspended flights in the area, and tourists have been fleeing in droves.
