Uber and Careem taxi services operating in Egypt said on Tuesday that they will appeal the court order banning their services to a higher court in the country.

Earlier on Tuesday, an administrative court in Egypt decided to ban the Uber and Careem taxi services from operating in the country based on a lawsuit filed by a group of traditional taxi drivers, accusing the two companies of breaking traffic laws by using private vehicles for commercial purposes.


"We respect the Egyptian judiciary... but we will appeal the verdict before the concerned court and our services are still available in Egypt," Xinhua quoted Uber Egypt's General Manager Abdel-Latif Waked as saying.
