Egyptian Finance Minister Samir Radwan on Tuesday said that those who have lost work because of the mass protests in the country will receive unemployment compensation, CNN reported.

"Unemployment will increase due to this destruction and because economic life has been halted for more than a week now. We have also taken a decision that everyone who works and has been out of work because of these events will receive unemployment compensation. This is the quick solution which the Finance Ministry saw as its duty to offer to the Egyptian people," Samir said.
