Endless violence engulfs Egypt

In Cairo, fighting erupted between demonstrators supporting deposed president Morsi and security forces in Egypt on Sunday, leaving 51 people dead and more than 260 injured. Meanwhile, in the Sinai, armed men killed 5 Egyptian soldiers in an attack on a military checkpoint near the Suez Canal city of Ismailiya. In another attack, a massive explosion, possibly from a car bomb, hit the security headquarters in a southern Sinai town, killing 3 people and wounding 47.

Travellers are cautioned to reconsider travel to Egypt at this time and to avoid all travel in the Sinai area.
