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".
