There are a number of links, which provided more detail
about this ongoing controversy. They are:

the Crater Field in the Gilf Kebir Region (SW Egypt).

Cratering in the Solar System Agenda, Monday 8 May 2006 at:

On page 25 of the above PDF file, Di Martino and coauthors
dispute the impact origin of what has been called the “Kebira
crater” in Libya - Egypt.
