Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has approved stringent new counter-terrorism laws in the country - to fight a growing Islamist insurgency. ISIL affiliated militants have been a growing threat in Egypt in recent months. The laws establish special courts and offer additional protection from legal consequences for military and police officers who have used force. They also impose the death penalty for anyone convicted of terrorism. Rights groups have criticised the law, saying it will allow authorities to crack down on dissent.
