Two arrested strike leaders from Egypt’s Suez Steel company were released on bail, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported on Tuesday evening.

The striking workers were released after fellow workers protested in front of the Suez court on Tuesday to demand the release of their comrades.

The police had arrested the striking workers on Monday in a sit-in held at their factory in Al-Ataqa industrial zone in Suez.

The judge had ruled to extend the custody of the workers, arrested on charges for inciting strike, for 15 days.
