‘No concrete step’ yet for Homs evacuation, aid

Syrians look at the damage after an alleged mortar attack by opposition forces on the al-Mahattah neighbourhood of Homs, on January 9, 2014No concrete steps have been taken to evacuate women and children or provide aid to the besieged Old City of Homs despite an agreement at Syrian peace talks in Geneva, the Red Cross said Monday. "Until today noon, there has been no concrete step taken for any operation of this type in Homs Old City," Robert Mardini, head of operations for the Middle East at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), told AFP. On Sunday at the UN-brokered negotiations in Geneva, Syria's regime agreed to allow women and children safe passage from rebel-held areas of the city of Homs where they have been under siege for nearly 600 days, with near-daily shelling and the barest of supplies.

Army chief Sisi, Egypt’s new nationalist icon

An Egyptian supporter of the military-installed government holds a poster bearing a portrait of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo on January 25, 2014Egypt's army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, whom the military has endorsed for the presidency after he ousted a civilian leader, has emerged as a nationalist icon in the mould of Gamal Abdel Nasser. Sisi, 59, has not yet said whether he will seek the country's highest office, but Egypt's military commanders on Monday said in a statement that "the people's trust in Sisi is a call that must be heeded as the free choice of the people." Adly Mansour, who was installed as interim president by the army after it toppled the elected Islamist leader Mohamed Morsi in July, issued a decree earlier on Monday promoting Sisi to the military's highest rank of field marshal. Sisi and Nasser, the charismatic colonel who ruled Egypt between 1954 and 1970, were both military men whose popularity was stoked by rising nationalism and who oversaw wide-ranging crackdowns on the Muslim Brotherhood.
