3 Teens Taken Into Custody for A Severe Act

Published

Ever since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, things had been getting a bit calmer around the world. For instance, rape rates had decreased, the amount of robberies were less than the usual, and we all just felt that maybe the world would become a better place.

On the other hand, some people took advantage of the fact that the word is going through a medical crisis and that maybe, just maybe, they would go unnoticed for their acts. For instance, about a month ago, an infamous painting of our beloved artist Van Gogh had been stolen from one of the museums around the globe.

For some reason, people thought that the government or police would be too busy dealing with other stuff that they won’t have the time to punish those who need punishing. For example, two well known Egyptian bloggers were taken into custody for posting a video of themselves basically telling people to ignore the curfew and all the precautionary measurement.

Now what happened yesterday in Egypt was quite shocking. Three teenagers were taken into custody for being accused of posting a blasphemous video of one of them smoking while praying. What? This will be an ongoing pending investigation for the time span of four days.

Their video had gone viral after one of the boys was praying and one of his friends had lit a cigarette and put it in the mouth of the one who’s praying to take a drag, while the third boy was recording a video of what was going on.

These three male teenagers were each 17 years old and were arrested immediately in Beheira governorate for causing great distress on social media. The mischievous teens had confessed to committing this act in hopes of seeking fame on social media.

This had left the entire Egyptian population left in shock, especially since our country is supposedly a religious one and smoking a cigarette and praying are two things that should never be mixed together.

Egypt’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Development has announced that Egypt is planning on building its very first train factory in Port Said.

The factory will build EMUs, DMUs and monorail trains in East Port Said industrial zone.

The Ministry made the announcement on the 16th of September in a meeting attended between the minister of planning and economic development, Dr Hala El-Said, transport minister Major General Kamel El-Wazir and chairman of the Suez Canal Economic Zone Authority, Mr Yahia Zaki.

The meeting went over the project’s implementation plan and the possible outputs of the factory.

Egyptian Railways Services and Maintenance Company (Ermas) will most probably run the new plant in cooperation with the private sector including a number of international companies, such as the Suez Canal Economic Zone, and Egypt’s Sovereign Fund.

According to El-Waziri, the factory is seen as part of a localizing initiative that aims at producing railway equipment locally, in order to meet the rising demand both domestically and in Africa and on the Arabian peninsula.

The factory will help boost the Egyptian economy, in addition to generating hard currency and providing job opportunities.

AstraZeneca announced today the effectiveness of its Covid-19 vaccine and it turned out to be around 90% effective with no serious side effects!

According to data from the late-stage trials in Britain and Brazil, the vaccine, which is developed by Oxford University, has shown 90% effectiveness after being administered as a a half dose followed by a full dose at least one month apart.

“This vaccine’s efficacy and safety confirm that it will be highly effective against COVID-19 and will have an immediate impact on this public health emergency,” Pascal Soriot, Astra’s chief executive, said in a statement.

British Prime minister Boris Johnson said it was “incredibly exciting news the Oxford vaccine has proved so effective in trials.”

The next step now is for the company to start preparing regulatory submission of the data to authorities across the world that have a framework in place for conditional or early approval.

It will also seek an emergency use listing from the World Health Organization (WHO) to speed up availability in countries with low income. In parallel, the full analysis of the interim results is being submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

With both Oxford’s and Pfizer’s vaccines, we can be hopeful that the new year will come bearing good news!
