Posted by on February 12, 2011 0 Comment

Cairo, Feb 12 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Egypt’s interim authorities shortened the curfew hours Saturday, setting the new time from midnight to 6 a.m., state TV reported.

Friday night, tens of thousands of people defied the curfew – previously set from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. – to celebrate the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule.

Mubarak stepped down and handed over power to the country’s military Friday, after 18 days of mass anti-government demonstrations.
