Violence continues in Cairo after football riot in Port Said

More demonstrations against the perceived failure of security forces to prevent the rioting at the football match in Port Said have resulted in at least 12 new deaths in Cairo, along with reports that 2,532 people were injured over the past three days.

Travellers to Egypt exercise caution since the political situation remains somewhat unstable. Travellers should avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
