Egypt ad­mon­ishes US over se­cu­rity warn­ing

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Egypt has crit­i­cised an “in­com­pre­hen­si­ble” US warn­ing to cit­i­zens to avoid theatres and malls in Cairo over the week­end be­cause of un­spec­i­fied se­cu­rity con­cerns, say­ing it could dam­age the coun­try’s econ­omy. The alert is­sued by the US em­bassy in Cairo on Fri­day was cited in Cana­dian and Aus­tralian travel warn­ings, with the Bri­tish For­eign Of­fice later putting out a mes­sage that copied the US warn­ing. Em­bassy of­fi­cials de­clined to com­ment, and an Egyp­tian in­te­rior min­istry of­fi­cial said he was un­aware of any threat.
