Event

Demonstrators clashed with security forces in Suez on Saturday night (local time), September 21, marking the second consecutive day of protests demanding the resignation of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi over corruption allegations. Some 200 people protested in central Suez on Saturday night before security forces forcibly attempted to disperse demonstrators with tear gas, rubber bullets, and live ammunition; the protests and associated clashes continued in Suez into Sunday, September 22. At least 220 people have been arrested in several Egyptian cities and towns - notably including Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, and Suez - since the demonstrations began on Friday night, September 20.

Similar protests and clashes between demonstrators and security forces are to be expected in Egyptian cities, including Suez, over the coming days. A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be anticipated around protest sites.  

Advice

Individuals in Egypt are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions near protests, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
