Carmen Weinstein [1], Egypt's Jewish community leader, has died at the age of 82. Zeinobia, at Egyptian Chronicles, collects [2] reactions from the funeral service, which gathered a lot of media attention:

There is a huge surprising media presence as well security presence where those invited to the funeral have to show their IDs. I am surprised to see such media presence as I knew from a friend who is attending the funeral it was private event.
