S&P cuts Egypt's sovereign rating to 'C'
CAIRO May 9 (Reuters) - Standard & Poor's said on Thursday it lowered Egypt's sovereign credit rating to 'C' from 'B' with a stable outlook.
The agency reduced Egypt's foreign and domestic long-term rating to 'CCC+' and foreign and local short-term rating to 'C'.
In December it cut the long-term rating to 'B-' from 'B', saying another cut was possible if political turbulence worsened and undermined the country's ability to make hard choices on public finances.
