Turmoil and unrest continue to rock the Egyptian streets. Now- the U.S. embassy is doing what it can to get Americans out of Egypt.
With tens of thousands of Americans living in or visiting Egypt, CNN reports Cairo’s airport is filled with people waiting for charter flights to “safe havens” in Europe.
“We’ve seen crowds of hundreds of people before dawn on Saturday morning stranded, sleeping on the floor of Cairo International airport in bit of an information vacuum because at that point cell phones were still down and Internet is still blocked in this country. So people having a very difficult time trying to organize everything from hotel bookings to flight bookings to try to get in or out of the country.”
50,000 Americans have registered with the U.S. Embassy. The State Department estimates thousands will try to escape the country. CNBC’s Erin Burnett sets the scene.
“The airports are literally just not functioning business as usual at all. It’s utter confusion mode. When we arrived we counted about 12 planes at least sitting on the tarmac empty and no one really knew what was going on. It took us a very long time to even get off our plane. The airport is literally struggling to operate and handle a huge surge in travelers.”
The embassy has encouraged U.S. residents of Egypt to find their own commercial flights, but it’s not so easy. As USA Today reports...
“Many airlines - including EgyptAir and Delta, which fly between New York and Cairo - have curtailed or suspended Cairo flights indefinitely.”
And while a lot of people are trying to get out- many American journalists are trying to get in. Nicholas Kristof reports for The New York Times, he didn’t have any trouble getting inside Egypt- but he’s having trouble getting word out.
“My mobile phones are working, but the Internet is down. So I have been going somewhere where I can get access to a (very slow!) satellite phone. But, especially after dark and after curfew, you think twice about making the journey.”
Even though social media access has been somewhat limited during the revolts- NBC reports outlets like Twitter have played a major role in the protests. The hosts wonder- what’s next?
MATT LAUER: “With the global nature of communications and events these days. I mean if what happened in Tunisia sparked what’s happening in Egypt, the big question is what happens next in places like Yemen, Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia?” ANN CURRY: “In Sudan as well. All of these places have dates, you know on the Twitter page. There’s a date with a hash mark that says that’s the day they’re going to launch.”
