Egyptians Block Railroad in Protest Against Bread Subsidy Cut

Protesters took to the streets of several Egyptian cities on March 7 after government cuts supply of subsidized bread. Protesters blocked roads and surrounded government buildings, local reports said.

The Egyptian supply minister Ali Moselhy said that the ministry had reduced the bread subsidy quota for bakeries in order to trim waste caused by the misuse and “profiteering” of bakery owners, according to Egyptian media. Credit: Facebook/Egypt Movement Office via Storyful
