King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has called for an international effort to raise funds for Egypt’s battered economy after former army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi won the country’s presidential election, Bloomberg has reported. Friends of Egypt should hold an aid conference to pledge financial support, King Abdullah said. Egypt “needs us today more than ever,” he said.
