Egyptians rushing to buy subsidised sugar from a government truck after a shortage across the country. They are being clobbered by tax increases, soaring food price inflation and cuts in state subsidies.
A CARTOON which appeared on social media shows a drowning Egyptian, only his hand protruding from the depths, waving for help. The next strips show President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi diving in, taking the drowning man's watch and turning away.
