How Egypt and Mexico Reprted the Tourist Killings

The recent incident in which Egyptian police and security forces mistakenly attacked a party of Mexican tourists and their Egyptian guides, killing 12, drew sharp protest from Mexico. MadaMasr has an interesting comparison of the very different media coverage the incident received in the two countries' respective media outlets: "Timeline: How Egypt and Mexico communicated the Tourist killings."

You may draw your own conclusions.
