Egypt has rolled clocks back one hour for the end of daylight savings time in the fourth time change in less than five months.

As of midnight Thursday Egypt is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time and six hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.

Egypt stopped switching between summer and winter time after the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak in the 2011 uprising. In May the government moved clocks ahead one hour as a power-saving measure. It then switched clocks for the start and end of Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month, which this year fell in the scorching months of June and July.
