Egypt govt to install surveillance cameras throughout Alexandria

The government has allocated LE100 million for the purchase and installation of surveillance cameras throughout Alexandria, Egypt's second city, Amin Rady, chairman of parliament’s defense and national security committee, said on Monday.

“The cameras will monitor all of the city's entrances and exits, public squares and landmarks,” he said.
Rady also noted that the Interior Ministry planned to step up security in and around the nation's churches, especially during Christian feasts and holidays.
The moves come in the wake of the New Year's Eve bombing of a Coptic church in Alexandria that killed 25 people and left scores injured.
