Meanwhile, our students in Egypt (mainly in Cairo), numbering some 11,000, are trying to get out of the country. Most are so scared.
The government will be evacuating them. The first evacuation of Malaysian students from Cairo to Saudi Arabia will begin by tomorrow (Thursday) at the latest.
Two C130 RMAF aircraft are being despatched to Cairo today to fly the students to Jeddah.
