Egypt foreign reserves see first improvement since 2010 uprising

According to data by Egypt's central bank, the country's foreign reserves rose in April for the first time since December 2010, Reuters has reported. The reserves have tumbled by more than half since a popular uprising toppled Egypt's president in February 2011 and sent the economy into a tailspin. Foreign reserves edged up to $15.21bn at the end of April from $15.12bn at the end of March, the central bank said.
