Cairo subway shut down indefinitely for security reasons

Due to political unrest, Cairo’s subway had been closed for two years. Now it will be closed for an indefinite amount of time.

Tahrir Square’s Sadat metro station was closed this month after Egypt’s prosecutor-general Hisham Barakat was assassinated. This is another clear example of how conflict and violence seriously impedes any environmental progress in Cairo – a city clogged with traffic and fumes from vehicles.

Cairo’s main central metro station had re-opened at the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan on 17 June.

Barakat had died late June after sustaining serious injuries in a blast which targeted his motorcade in Heliopolis.
