Egypt extends emergency laws

Published: 09.12.13, 17:27 / Israel News

Egypt's interim president has extended a nationwide state of emergency by two months, citing security conditions.


The presidential decree Thursday comes days before the expiration of the state of emergency imposed in August after authorities cleared two protest encampments held by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, unleashing violence that claimed the lives of nearly 1,000 in subsequent days. Ever since, a nighttime curfew has also been in effect in a number of governorates. The government will decide separately on whether to continue the curfew. (AP)
