Indians in Egypt safe, says embassy

Indians in Egypt numbering 3600 are safe and the Indian embassy is in constant touch with them to monitor their well-being in the wake of violent protests against President Hosni Mubarak`s rule.



Cairo: Indians in Egypt numbering 3600 are
safe and the Indian embassy is in constant touch with them to
monitor their well-being in the wake of violent protests
against President Hosni Mubarak`s rule.

"The 3600-strong Indian community in Egypt is safe," the
Indian embassy here said.

It said that a 24-hour Control Room has been operating in
the mission since January 28 to assist the Indian nationals.

The embassy had earlier facilitated three special flights
of Air India on January 31 and February 2 from Cairo to Mumbai
to transport Indian nationals, including tourists stranded in
Egypt, desirous of leaving the country immediately but not
getting confirmed seats on commercial flights, it said.

The embassy statement came amid unprecedented protests
against Mubarak`s 30-year rule. More than 150 people have been
killed and thousands injured in the uprising which began on
Tuesday last.
