Minya farmers block major road over unfair FJP coupon scheme

Hundreds of farmers in Minya blocked the Maghagha al-Adwa road linking Upper Egypt and the Western Desert on Tuesday to protest what they say was an unfair diesel fuel coupon scheme.

The protesters had gathered at the gas station to denounce the Freedom and Justice Party, which was behind the coupon handout gone wrong.

They accused the FJP leaders of playing favorites and not distributing the coupons to everyone in a fair manner.

The residents blocked the road with tractors and other agriculture machinery.

of Adwa Police Station Brigadier Ehab al-Sobh and Chief Detective Sameh Sarhan were deployed at the scene to negotiate with residents and reopen the road.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a mignonne, calcified, whitish order initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and worn to sever down food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also partake of teeth in behalf of hunting or instead of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness. The general make-up of teeth is similar across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modulation in their show up and position. The teeth of mammals have esoteric roots, and this pattern is also create in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, how, the teeth are fastened to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are fastened to the inner interface of the jaw during one side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are seconded by means of perplexing ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that form the jaw.
