Wheat prices fall as Egypt looks elsewhere

By-Egypt News | 29 August 2010

 CAIRO - Police said they had dispersed hundreds of protesters who blocked a northern Egyptian highway on Friday for two hours and attempted to set fire to a private car after it struck and killed a Government employee, security sources said Saturday.

    Riot police dispersed  hundreds of residents of Sindnhour village, who blocked the Cairo to Alexandria highway in an attempt to kill the driver of the speeding car that killed the victim while he was crossing the street.

    The villagers managed to block the highway and set car tyres afire before police forcibly dispersed them.

    Governor of Qalyubiya Adli Hussein bowed to the rioters' demands by ordering a pedestrian bridge to be built over the road.
