Egypt bans sale of alcohol in new suburbs
- Egypt: Sunday, February 17 - 2013 at 05:02
Egypt's New Urban Communities Authorities has said the government will stop issuing licences for the sale of alcohol in some urban areas due to local complaints over security, Ahram has reported. The new measures will apply to recently-built developments on the outskirts of Egypt's major cities such as Cairo and Alexandria, said the vice-president of the government body. "It's not our decision. The cities' boards of trustees who are freely elected by the residents are demanding the closure of places which sell alcoholic products and have submitted numerous complaints of troubles the residents incur," Nabil Abbass told the daily. "The decision will affect only the residential areas of the new cities, while other areas, such as touristic, industrial and commercial zones, are still free from the ban," Abbass added.
