All the Times 2016 Couldn’t Give Egypt a Break

This was a really hard year. Like, really hard. On all of us. No one seemed to catch a breath, or smile for two days in a row because Egypt kept getting slapped in the face time after time. We seriously need this year to end. Here is a painful walk down Egypt’s 2016 lane and its harshest moments.
