Ines Abdel-Dayem, removed by the Islamists from her post at Cairo Opera House, has turned down the post of Culture Minister in the new Egyptian Cabinet after threats to her life by Islamist groups. The ew minister is the man who fired her three moths ago. Our correspondent says there is much anger and the situation remains unstable.
Abdel-Dayem’s eviction provoked a strike by opera house personnel and street demonstrations a few days before the Morsi government fell.
