Americans Advised to Leave Egypt

CAIRO, EGYPT (AP) Foreign governments are stepping up their warnings about travel to Egypt.

Several, including the United States, are also urging their citizens to evacuate as soon as possible amid mass protests.

The U.S., Canada, Switzerland, Turkey and the Netherlands issued advisories encouraging nationals already in Egypt to leave and telling those who planned trips there to reconsider. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo said it's making arrangements to transport Americans who want to leave to "safehaven locations in Europe."  Flights would begin Monday.

A growing number of countries -- including China, Australia, France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Poland -- are warning against travel to most, if not all, of Egypt.
