U.S. Advises Americans to Leave Egypt ASAP

Egyptian anti-government protesters pray in front of an Egyptian army tankduring a protest in Tahrir …WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department says U.S. citizens in Egypt should consider leaving the country as soon as they can because of the spreading unrest there.

The department says demonstrations against the government of President Hosni Mubarak have not targeted Westerners, but Americans should take precautions for their own security.

The U.S. government is also allowing nonessential diplomats and the families of all embassy workers to leave Egypt at Washington’s expense. The step builds on a travel warning from Friday urging Americans to avoid traveling to Egypt because of the unrest.

Americans are advised to remain in their homes or hotels until the situation stabilizes.
