Hussein Zakaria, Chairman of Egypt’s National Railways Authority revealed that its losses have amounted to 190 million Egyptian pounds as a result of the stoppage of services since the 3 July coup.

Zakaria said in a telephone interview with CBC TV channel yesterday that the trains will only resume their movement to Cairo when a security decision has been taken; pointing out that the railways constitute a vital means of transportation to the Egyptian people.

It would be recalled that the Egyptian military junta suspended the movement of trains across country after the massacres to disperse the pro-legitimacy sits-ins at Rabaa Al-Adawiya and Nahda squares on 14 August.
