    ROME - Egyptian President Abdul al-Sisi on Monday approved a new package of severe measures to fight Islamic terrorism, the BBC said. Among the measures approved was the death penalty for whoever establishes or leads a terrorist cell.

    The package includes 54 new measures against terrorism, described as "every act that harms public order by force". Also included are very heavy fines for journalists who publish "false news or declarations" about terrorist acts or who publish information contradicting defence ministry news releases.

    According to al-Sisi critics, the laws will serve to suppress dissent.
