More demonstrations lead to deaths in Egypt

Two separate demonstrations, one as the result of destruction of a Coptic church, and the other by frustrations with the progress of political reform resulted in 24 deaths and many more injured persons. In the latter, various factions of demonstrators battled each other while security forces sought to re-establish order.

Travellers to Egypt should be aware that the political and personal security situation remains somewhat unstable. Spontaneous demonstrations and violence may erupt suddenly. Travellers should exercise considerable caution and avoid all demonstrations. Some countries recommend that their citizens reconsider the need to travel to Egypt at this time.
