Illegal stalls clamp.

MORE than 100 stalls erected by illegal street vendors in Manama have been taken down since the beginning of Ramadan.

The Manama Municipality has removed 115 stalls from the streets of the capital as part of a crackdown on potentially dangerous foods, it said in a statement yesterday.

Inspectors have confiscated the equivalent of 18 truckloads of fruit and vegetables, inedible fish and other food products that were displayed in the scorching heat as temperatures passed 40C.

The crackdown will continue until the end of Ramadan in co-ordination with the Interior and Health ministries.

Members of the public can report illegal vendors by calling 33037227, 80001855 or visiting the website
