Egypt curfew to end

12 November 2013, 11:11

Cairo - Egypt's interior minister has indicated that a curfew and state of emergency will expire on Wednesday as scheduled.

General Mohammed Ibrahim told the official news agency on Monday that he will boost security forces after the curfew is lifted "to tighten control and instill a feeling of confidence and security in citizens".

Egypt imposed a curfew based on a state of emergency that was passed on 14 August, when security forces violently dispersed two Cairo protest camps of supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi. Hundreds of people were killed and the days of unrest that followed left more than 1 000 dead.

It would require a public referendum to extend the state of emergency.

The curfew has been 19:00 on Friday and 01:00 on all other days.
