Egypt's military council lifts nightly curfew

Measure imposed during protests against government of Hosni Mubarak is lifted.

    A nightly curfew in Egypt imposed during protests against the government in January has been lifted.

    The ruling military council hopes the move will help Egypt to "return to normal".

    But there are fears it might also lead to an increase in crime.
