|Egypt Demonstrations-January 25|
Friday, January 25, 2013
Today in Egypt, citizens are gathering in numerous locations throughout the country to demonstrate for the 2nd anniversary of the 2011 revolution. Large numbers of Egyptians have turned out in both central Cairo and Alexandria, where IFSA-Butler programs are located. Demonstrations are expected to continue through tomorrow, January 26, in anticipation of the court verdict for the critical incident at the Port Said soccer match last year.
The IFSA-Butler resident director in Egypt has confirmed that all students are accounted for and doing well. Since today is Friday, there are no classes at the university. Therefore, students have been instructed to remain in their apartments the entire day. IFSA-Butler will continue to monitor events happening around Egypt and provide updates as necessary.
