Worsening security situation pulls down Egypt's economy - Northern Ireland's farmers concerned about Brexit
EU ministers have given the bloc's lead negotiator for Brexit his mandate for the negotiations. French former diplomat Michel Barnier is not expected to begin talks until after the UK general election in June.

Britain must first settle issues of "people, money and Ireland" before talks on a post-Brexit trade deal can start. That's what the EU's Donald Tusk told leaders of the remaining 27 states ahead of a summit in Brussels.
