    Smile from 1600 local time (1400GMT)


    Hello everybody,

    What do the underlined words mean?


    This is a quote from the BBC:

    "Tens of thousands of demonstrators remain on the streets of Egypt's major cities, despite a curfew from 1600 local time (1400 GMT). "

    GMT = Greenwich Mean Time, which is the time in the UK now, so Egypt is two hours ahead of the UK.
