The US embassy in Cairo released a statement last night warning US citizens residing in Egypt that today’s mass protests may turn violent and advised them to avoid Tahrir Square. The statement said that even though most protests in Tahrir Square usually have a peaceful nature, there is a chance there will be violent clashes as a result of the political turmoil facing the nation lately.
