Al-Ahram Weekly

Dr Mursi Saad El-Din, the founding cultural editor of Al-Ahram Weekly, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92. Saad El-Din was among the foremost authorities on the English language in Egypt, being the advisory editor of almost every English publication that appeared in the last six decades. Among the many posts that he held was that of director of the Information Authority and (under the late president Anwar Al-Sadat, notably during the Camp David accords) spokesman of the presidency. Dr Mursi was a warm and enriching presence in the Weekly. He will be sorely missed.
