Security forces break up Luxor railway sit-in

Security forces broke up a sit-in by temporary railway sanitation workers after their protest blocked tracks since Sunday, arresting eight of them.

The sit-in completely halted rail traffic and delayed 11 trains going between Aswan and Cairo or Alexandria.

The workers demanded permanent employment and a direct contract with the Railway Authority. Over 400 workers protested, 150 of whom were security guards while the rest were janitors.

Prosecutors have pledged to investigate the sit-in and determine the protest leader.

The train halt was the third one Sunday. Earlier, residents of Nag Hammadi and Beni Suef stopped trains to protest diesel shortages.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a undersized, calcified, whitish form start in the jaws (or mouths) of innumerable vertebrates and used to sever down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also take teeth in behalf of hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness. The community structure of teeth is similar across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction converting in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals be struck by serious roots, and this design is also create in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, regardless how, the teeth are fastened to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner interface of the jaw alongside a man side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.
