Port Sudan — On Tuesday morning the cargo workers of three stores of the Agricultural Bank at Abu Hashish in Port Sudan lifted their a one-day strike in protest against the Agricultural Bank's administration issuance of payment of receipts on behalf of the companies established by the governor of Red Sea state.

He said they are ready to resume the strike if the state government insists on handing-over the work of the association to companies.
