U.S. Embassy Recommends Americans Leave Egypt
The U.S. Embassy recommends Americans leave Egypt as soon as possible.
The Sunday morning travel warning came as uncertainty mounted over how the demonstrations that have roiled the Arab world’s most populous nation will play out. Those questions, coupled with the growing lawlessness, have panicked Egyptians and foreigners alike, with thousands flocking to the airport frantically trying to secure a dwindling number of available seats. Others hopped on private jets and made their escape.
The travel warning said the Embassy will update Americans about departure assistance as soon as possible. Other nations, including China, France, Germany, Belgium and Russia have warned or advised their citizens against travel to Egypt.
