CAIRO - Egypt's three-month state of emergency and nightly curfews will be lifted on Thursday, the Minister of Administrative Development said.

The army imposed the state of emergency in mid-August amid the political turmoil that gripped the country after the military overthrew President Mohamed Morsi on July 3 in reaction to mass protests against his rule.

"The emergency law will end tomorrow and the curfew will end tomorrow," Minister Hany Mahmoud said at a press conference following a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
