Possible extension of terrorist threat in Nile Valley, Egypt

Advice For Travellers

While the target for potential terrorist attacks involves police and security installations, travellers should exercise caution and avoid public places that might be targets for extremists. In these situations, embassies, hotels, cafes, and markets frequented by westerners are often targets. Avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without warning.
