Schools and universities' mid-year vacation, which was supposed to end Saturday 12 February, will be extended at least for another week.

Minister of Higher Education Hani Hilal says the delay is to restore damaged school buildings and resume mid-year exam marking interrupted due to political unrest.

Protests calling for a regime change erupted on 25 January. A few days later, a curfew was imposed, interrupting mid-term exams in many faculties. Schools pupils were already in their mid-year vacation.
