CAIRO — Egypt's national carrier says it has suspended its flights from Cairo for 12 hours.

EgyptAir's announcement follows a government-imposed curfew from 6 pm to 7 am in response to widespread demonstrations and rioting that engulfed the Egyptian capital after Friday prayers.

The company said its flights from abroad will be able to land, but departures were canceled from 9 pm.

Separately, a Cairo Airport official said a number of international airlines had canceled flights to the capital, at least overnight. The official was not authorized to speak to the media and spoke on condition of anonymity.
