ObituaryAL-AHRAM'S LOSS: Our dear colleague Samia El-Guindi, deputy managing editor of Al-Ahram and chief of the newspaper's foreign news features department, died last Thursday following a sudden heart attack. She was 52. She will be sorely missed by the staff of Al-Ahram Weekly who extend their most heartfelt condolences to her family.
The unexpected death of El-Guindi, whose career spanned nearly 30 years, came six weeks after that of her husband, Imam Shahin, deputy director of Al-Ahram's Computer Centre. El-Guindi graduated in 1970 from the English literature department of Cairo University's Faculty of Arts. She is survived by two daughters -- Sarah, a student at the Applied Arts College, and Reem, a preparatory school student.
