Al-Waqa'i' al-Misriyya

  (Redirected from Vekayi-i Misriye)
The first edition of Al-Waqa'i' al-Misriyya, published in 1828, in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina

Al-Waqa'i' al-Misriyya (Arabic: الوقائع المصريّة‎ / ALA-LC: al-Waqā’i‘ al-Miṣriyyah; meaning "the Egyptian affairs"), was an Egyptian newspaper established in 1828 on the order of Muhammad Ali, originally called "Vekayi-i Misriye" (Ottoman Turkish: وقایع مصریه‎) and written in Ottoman Turkish in one column with an Arabic translation in a second column (Ottoman Turkish text was in the right one and Arabic text in the left one), and later in Arabic only[1] under the Arabic title.

Al-Waqa'i' was the official gazette of Egypt, and is now published as an appendix of the Official Journal.[2]
