Protesters block Egypt-Asyut agriculture freeway over lack of water

Residents from Om Khenan Village blocked the Egypt-Asyut agriculture freeway ‎Saturday in protest over a lack of potable water. ‎

The inhabitants of Om Khenan, one of the largest Egyptian villages, have long suffered ‎from recurring water outages, but the problem became ‎aggravated since the January 25 ‎Revolution. ‎

Residents appear fed up, having been promised more than once by authorities that the ‎problem would be fixed, albeit to no avail.‎
