More re Cairo protests

If anyone is daft enough to be sight-seeing in Cairo at the moment, the latest and most unsurprising news from the BBC is that access to the pyramids at Giza has been closed by the military.

Travel news for British travellers, also from the BBC is that British Airways has chartered a plan to evacuate anyone who wishes to leave.

Other tour companies are also taking action - which is probably just as well as the Associated Press report that 1500-2000 travellers, both foreign tourists and Egyptians, have been arriving at Cairo airport to find flights out of the country. See the Associated Press for some details.
