Egypt's banks and stock exchange will remain closed next Sunday to mark the anniversary of beginning of the nation's 1973 October War against Israel.

A Monday statement from the Central Bank of Egypt announced the holiday, which falls at the end of the weekend and means a three-day closure for the country's financial institutions.
The previous day, 6 October, is a national holiday in Egypt.
