Today, Muslims around the world are celebrating Eid and sharing Eid greetings. But those greetings are not flying too far this time. They are heavily soaked with the weekend bombing in Iraq that caused more than 250 lives. Saudi Arabia got struck by three suicide attacks two days before Eid.
The first home rebuilt will go to a single mother of two.

Despite worldwide publicity and campaigning, the approach to actually solving the sexual harassment epidemic in Egypt has sadly been a pretty apathetic one, with police giving less than a gram of shit about the situation, leaving street perverts to grope away until their hands are content.
It's perhaps no surprise that anti-harassment groups in Cairo have gone vigilante, taking what's left of the law into their own hands and patrolling the streets to fight the harassment epidemic themselves. I spoke to Muhammad Taimoor, leader and founder of the campaign, about their controversial tactics during the festival.
