Curfew in Egypt city reduced to three hours: governor
ISMAILIA, Egypt (Reuters) - The nightly curfew in Ismailia, one of three Egyptian cities where a state of emergency was declared this week, has been cut to three hours from the nine hours originally imposed, the governor said on Wednesday.
Governor Gamal Imbaby, a former general, told reporters the new times for the curfew, which has been routinely defied since it came into effect on Monday, would be 2 a.m. (0000 GMT) to 5 a.m. (0300 GMT) instead of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The governors of Suez and Port Said, the other two cities along the Suez Canal where a curfew was imposed, said they were still discussing the matter.
