CAIRO: Members of the Egyptian Bar Association on Sunday called off a days-long strike held in protest against the jailing of six colleagues, a statement said.

The association had announced on Thursday an open-ended strike to condemn their colleagues´ sentencing to two years in jail over a court brawl earlier this month. The bar association decided “to cancel the suspension of work”, it said in the statement.
