FILE - In this Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, file photo, provided by the Egyptian Presidency, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi waves during a visit to the Suez Canal in Ismailia, Egypt. A year after the general-turned-politician took office after a landslide election win, el-Sissi has effectively shut down politics and is running the country as a one-man show, a far cry from the democracy millions dreamed of when they toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a stunning 2011 uprising.
