The US State Department has extended until May 22 its travel alert for citizens who reside in, or may fly to Egypt, citing the “continuing political and social unrest” in the country, Kuna has reported. The department said US citizens are strongly urged “to avoid all demonstrations in Egypt, as even peaceful ones can quickly become violent, and a foreigner could become a target of harassment or worse.”
