Cairo upset over latest US travel warning to Egypt

CAIRO — Egypt has expressed "discontent" over the latest U.S. travel warning to the Mideast country, saying the notice makes a false distinction between terrorist groups and violent political organizations.

Foreign Ministry spokesman, Ahmed Abu Zeid, said on Thursday that the wording of the travel advisory was dissatisfactory.

He says it is "unacceptable" to distinguish between violent political and militants since any group that uses violence is a terrorist one — a reference to the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.

The U.S. advisory on Wednesday urges Americans to consider the risks of travel to Egypt.

It came just days after a series of militant attacks, including a blitz in Sinai that killed 23 Egyptian soldiers and a stabbing attack on foreign tourists that killed two German women at a Red Sea resort.
