RIYADH: Saudi stock exchange Tadawul said on Monday it will continue to operate normally on reduced working hours from 10 am (0700 GMT) to 1 pm, after the Saudi government imposed a 24-hour curfew on a number of cities amid coronavirus fears.

"All market participants will continue to operate normally" the Middle East's largest bourse added in a statement.
