An Egyptian court ordered the suspension of licenses for ride-hailing companies Uber and Careem Tuesday, ruling on a lawsuit filed by taxi drivers seeking to shut down the two firms' operations in the country, judicial sources said.Khaled al-Gammal, a lawyer acting for the taxi drivers, said the court suspended the two companies' licenses, banned their apps and suspended the use of private cars by the two ride-hailing services.Tuesday's decision was effective immediately, meaning the companies must suspend services pending a final ruling, but the companies have 60 days to appeal, the judicial sources said. Uber intends to appeal any court decision to suspend ride sharing licences in Egypt, a source familiar with the matter said.
