Egypt blocks financial newspaper website
Egypt has blocked the website of one of its most prominent financial newspapers, the paper’s owner said on Sunday, expanding a media blackout initiated last week to curb what authorities called support for “terrorism” and fake news.

The censorship of Al-Boursa, a widely read financial newspaper that generally steers clear of politics and reflects the views of a largely pro-state business community, suggests a more expansive attempt to control private media coverage.
