Egyptians living in the governorates of Alexandria and Beheira were misled into breaking their fast seven minutes before the fixed time.

A local radio station made the mistake of broadcasting the Maghreb call to prayer earlier than usual, which induced hundreds of thousands of fasting Egyptians into breaking their fast early, reports Akhbar 24.

Alexandria Radio director Eman Fathallah ordered to question employees behind the blunder and take necessary measures.

MPs representing the area called for tough measures against those who made the mistake.
