Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli said that movement would be banned on all public roads from 19:00 local time until 06:00 the next morning.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi also tweeted about the new measures, adding that “all elements of the Egyptian state would confront any attempts to breach them with the utmost firmness and resolution”.

Most government centres will also be suspended, while all sports clubs and entertainment facilities will be shut down and the closure of schools will be extended.
