Egypt hosts African diplomats ton watch Ramses II sun phenomenon

Egypt on Friday hosted several diplomats from African countries, who joined spectators watching the sun’s dawn rays light up the statue of Pharaoh Ramses II at the country’s Abu Simbel temples, a phenomenon that occurs twice a year.

The visit by Egyptian officials and a raft of ambassadors from around the continent was part of efforts to boost tourism hit by years of turmoil since a 2011 uprising.

It comes after President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi assumed the chair of the African Union earlier this month, looking to boost Cairo’s influence in the region.
