Prague - The Czech Foreign Ministry has recommended Czech citizens today that they do not travel to Egypt, not even to Red Sea tourist resorts, over the worsening security situation all over the country, ministry spokeswoman Johana Grohova told CTK today.
The tourists who are in Egypt already should stay within hotel compounds and not leave them, she said.
The Association of Czech Travel Agents said today there are some 500 Czech tourists in Egypt now and that the more than 2000 who were planning to leave for the country this weekend will not do so.
Grohova said the ministry´s recommendation does not amount to a call for evacuation.
The situation in Egypt has worsened after the Wednesday police raid against supporters of the toppled president Mohamed Mursi in which some 600 people were killed. Demonstrations continue today and first deaths are reported.
