Protesting workers storm Ministry of Transportation

Temporary workers employed by the Ministry of Transport stormed the ministry offices on Sunday, hoping to meet with the minster and request him to appoint them on a permanent basis.

Ministry officials called the military police, who managed to convince the workers to end their protest on the understanding that Minister of Transport Atef Abdel Hamid would form a committee to discuss their demands.

The minister promised to meet with the protesters at a later date and discuss the issue with them.
