Many countries around the world have begun evacuating their nationals from strife-torn Cairo, at least 24 hours before Australians are due to see a government chartered Qantas 747 arrive at the capital's chaotic airport for them.
The government has chartered a Qantas 747 to take Australians from Cairo to either London or Frankfurt on Wednesday as deadly anti-government protests rage into a second week to force out beleaguered president Hosni Mubarak.
We recommend that British nationals without a pressing need to be in Cairo, Alexandria or Suez leave by commercial means where it is safe to do so.

I can imagine just how hard it is to get out of there. So many people go there from all over the world. I got stranded in Gatwick airport in London for 2 weeks and there was not even a riot going on. Everyone in the States assumes the American Embassy will take care of you. They are not in the caring for citizens business, usually no help at all for any reason.
