Egypt will repay a $2.5 billion deposit to Qatar at the end of November, bringing to $6 billion the deposits it has returned to the Gulf Arab gas exporter since last year's ouster of President Mohammad Morsi, a central bank source said on Thursday.Egypt has one Qatari deposit of $500 million outstanding, which is due to be repaid in the second half of 2015, the source told Reuters. Qatar had helped prop up the Egyptian economy in the aftermath of the 2011 uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak and eventually brought Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood to power in the country's first democratic elections. Egypt repaid a $500 million deposit in October and has another $500 million outstanding, which is due to be repaid in the second half of 2015, the source told Reuters.
