Kuwait urges citizens to leave Egypt immediately
July 3, 2013, 12:29 pm

Kuwait has urged its citizens in Egypt to leave “at the earliest” and warned against travel to the country after President Mohammad Mursi rejected an ultimatum by the army, amid mass protests and deadly clashes.

“All Kuwaitis present in Egypt must leave at the earliest due to the developments and events in various parts of the country,” the official Kuna news agency cited ambassador Rasheed Al Hamad as saying.

He also called on Kuwaitis to delay trips to Egypt due to the “unstable situation”.

Kuwait becomes the first Arab country to issue a travel warning to Egypt, where supporters and opponents of embattled Mursi clashed during the night in the capital Cairo, leaving more than 20 people dead.
