The committee also extended an evening ban on all commercial activities until the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan, which is due to start in mid-April this year, according to a statement on state media.

A curfew imposed on March 28 on movement of vehicles and people outdoors between 8pm and 5am would be lifted, as scheduled, on April 8 but would be reinstated during the month of Ramadan from 9pm to 4am, the statement added.
