Event

A prominent activist has called for protests in Cairo on Friday, January 25, in commemoration of the nine-year anniversary of the 2011 Arab Spring revolution that brought violence and regime change to the country. Participants are expected to gather at Tahrir Square, though other points of gathering are likely. Associated protests are very possible across the country. A heightened security presence and significant transportation are to be expected in Cairo and in other urban centers where protests may take place.

Advice

Individuals in Egypt are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, report suspicious behavior and objects to the authorities, and remain vigilant when visiting areas susceptible to terror activity (e.g. tourist sites, churches, international and government buildings, public transportation hubs, etc.).
