Egypt is seeking to increase its previously-requested £3.2m loan from the International Monetary Fund to cover its soaring budget deficit, the planning minister said in comments carried by two local newspapers today.
"Egypt will intensify its efforts in the spring meetings of the IMF in the period from April 16-21 to receive additional funding to cover the financing deficit until mid-2015," Ashraf El-Araby said in the Al Masry Al Youm newspaper.
"There are ongoing discussions to increase the loan, estimated at $4.8 billion but it may rise, especially with the increase in the budget deficit to $20 billion," he was quoted as saying.
The minister told Al-Mal daily financial newspaper that if a deal with the IMF is not reached before May, talks will be postponed until October when parliamentary elections are expected to start. An IMF delegation is currently in Cairo for loan talks.
Clashes between Egyptian Muslims and Christians erupted early today in a town near Cairo, leaving at least five people dead, security officials said.

Popular satirist Bassem Youseef is being questioned by prosecutors in Egypt over allegations of insulting Islam and President Mohammed Morsi.
Mr Youssef arrived at the public prosecutor's office this morning, after a warrant was issued for his arrest yesterday.
Youseef, who shot to fame after winning a large number of followers online for his critical and witty look at public figures in Egypt following the 2011 uprising, has faced several complaints over his show El Bernam (The Programme).
His show is broadcast three times a week on one of Egypt's independent satellite stations. His recent portrayals of Morsi as a Pharaoh, or "Super Morsi", have angered Islamists and the president's supporters.
Mr Youssef's case is also seen as the latest in a string of prosecution actions against opponents of the president and the movement that supports him, the Muslim Brotherhood.
