An official source in the finance ministry said that the ministry did not receive any request from the Qatar to repay withdraw the deposit recieved by Egypt worth $ 3 billion. The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, revealed that the topic was not put for discussion in the ministry of finance, because the ministry was not responsible for these request but the Egyptian Central Bank which manages the country's foreign reserves and has a set schedule regarding the maturities of deposits, and Gulf's loan installments. Egypt's president Abdel Fatah AlSisi demanded returning of the Qatari deposit fast on two installments during the months of October and November in a meeting the central bank’s governor Hisham Ramez. A $3 billion was deposited in Egypt’s central bank on August 10, 2012 after the Amir of Qatar declared that his country would deposit $2 billion. The source said that the bank is ready to repay $500 million on Early October, and another $1 billion is payable on early November. Egypt’s government owes Qatar a total debt worth nearly $7 billion, borrowed by Hisham Qandil’s government, during the Morsi administration. Qatar was repaid $3 billion since July until March of the current year composed of a $2 billion deposit and the depreciation of other deposits worth $1 billion.

U.S. military forces carried out an operation on Monday against al Shabaab militants in Somalia, a U.S. Department of Defense spokesman said. "We are assessing the results of the operation and will provide additional information as and when appropriate," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement. No further details about the operation in the African country were immediately available. Al Shabaab is an Islamist group affiliated with al Qaeda that wants to impose its own strict version of Islam in Somalia. It ruled most of the southern region of Somalia from 2006 until 2011, when African peacekeeping troops marched into the capital, Mogadishu. African and Somali forces have regained several towns this year, but rebels still hold other centers and tracts of countryside.
The United Nations agreed on Monday to send investigators to Iraq to examine crimes being committed by Islamic State militants on "an unimaginable scale", with a view to holding perpetrators to account. "We are facing a terrorist monster," Iraq's human rights minister, Mohammed Shia' Al Sudani, told the U.N. Human Rights Council which adopted a resolution tabled by Iraq and France at an emergency sitting of the 47-member state forum in Geneva. The Council aims to send 11 investigators, with a total budget of $1.18 million, to report back by March 2015. Islamic State, which declared a "caliphate" in June in parts of Iraq and Syria under its control, has been cited as a major security threat by Western governments since posting a video in August of the beheading of U.S journalist James Foley. The Sunni militants have driven more than 1.2 million people from their homes this year, the United Nations says. At least 1,420 people were killed in sectarian violence in Iraq in August alone, U.N. figures showed on Monday.
