CAIRO — Egypt’s stock exchange suspended trading temporarily on Thursday after a sharp drop, amid the largest anti-government protests in the country in three decades.
The suspension came after the benchmark EGX 30 index dropped 6.2 percent, a day after it recorded a fall of six percent.
Trading resumed at 11.30 am (0930 GMT), but the index recorded further falls.
