US has warned its citizens on Thursday not to travel to Egypt

The United States has warned its citizens on Thursday not to travel to Egypt and called on those  already there to leave.Any Americans who remain in Egypt despite the warning were urged to obey all local curfews in place and to avoid street demonstrations."Political unrest ... shows little sign of abating," the State Department  statement said.The warning said that foreigners caught up in the violence could become  targets for "harassment or worse" and noted that a US citizen was killed during a demonstration in Alexandria in June."Of continued concern is gender-based violence in and around protest areas where women have been the targets of sexual assault," it added.US auto giant General Motors announced Thursday that it was suspending production at its Egyptian plant while it re-evaluates the security situation.[AFP]
