Egypt's government has decided to again shorten a nighttime curfew put in place over much of the country because of unrest after a coup that ousted the country's president.
Friday is the start of the weekend in Egypt and has been a day of major protests since the 2011 uprising. Now, supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi take to the streets in rallies Friday that often descend into clashes.
The curfew, effective in a number of cities including the capital, Cairo, was announced along with a nationwide state of emergency in mid-August.
