Alert level 2 up in Egypt -- DFA

The Department of Foreign Affairs has raised the crisis alert level in Egypt from 1 to level 2 as peace and order continues to deteriorate in this middle eastern country.

In a press briefing today, DFA Assistant Secretary Raul Hernandez strongly advises Filipinos in Egypt to avoid protest areas, restrict their movements and prepare for possible evacuation should the political situation further deteriorate there.

He also said that processing of Filipinos seeking work in Egypt has been put on hold until further notice.

The public is also advised to postpone non-essential trips to Egypt.

"The embassy is ready 24/7 to respond to request for assistance," Hernandez said.(PIA Central/DFA)
