Egypt's stock market opening delayed again

Egypt's stock market has not reopened as planned on Tuesday after the financial authorities performed a late night u-turn.

The exchange is now due to reopen on Sunday, 6 March - five and a half weeks after Cairo's bourse was last active.

The change of plan followed investors' protests on Monday.
