Empowerment through art in Egypt

An after-school club in Egypt is teaching its students how to think creatively in order to give them a better future.

The project aims to provide vital skills for the workplace and fill an education gap left by Egypt’s school system.

Egypt rejects Muslim Brothood’s overtures

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s main opposition group, has endured years of government crackdowns.

Israeli officials have been repeating that the assault on Gaza is targeting Hamas, but Hamas’ military wing is not the only group battling Israeli troops.

The offensive may have united Palestinian resistance inside the Gaza Strip, but as Al Jazeera’s Roza Ibragimova reports, no other regional forces have joined them yet.
