Egypt to lift last curfews on June 15
Egypt's military rulers decided on Monday to end a three-hour curfew, which was imposed during the popular uprising earlier this year, dpa reported with reference to state radio.
The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which runs the country, decided to end the curfew on June 15 to "encourage a return to normal life," state radio reported.
A 14-hour curfew was first imposed on January 28 after bloody clashes between police and protesters, as well as looting and lack of security across the country, but was cut back in stages.
A three-hour curfew from 2 am to 5 am has continued in effect in the capital Cairo, the coastal city of Alexandria and the eastern city of Suez.
The January 25 uprising forced former president Hosny Mubarak to resign on February 11, after 18 days of protests by hundreds of thousands of Egyptians.
