CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's government has once again shortened a military-imposed evening curfew as violence and protests over the coup that toppled the country's president subside.
The Cabinet said in a statement Saturday the decision comes in response to popular demand. It rolls back the start of the curfew to 11 p.m. local time (2100 GMT).
The Cabinet said its decision takes effect immediately. However, the full 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew will remain in place for Fridays, when supporters of the ousted President Mohammed Morsi usually organize large rally.
Since the July 3 military coup, Morsi supporters have organized near daily protests that have often turned violent. A security crackdown that led to the arrest of hundreds of his supporters, including leading Brotherhood members, have caused protests to wane.
