Egypt Reopens Tahrir Square Metro Station After Two-year Closure

Egypt reopened a major downtown Cairo metro station on Wednesday after a two-year closure, signaling government confidence in the security situation despite several low-level attacks in the capital. Authorities shut the station in August 2013 when hundreds of supporters of former Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, ousted by the army after mass protests against his rule, were shot dead at two Cairo protest camps and thousands more rounded up.
