SITUATION IN DOWNTOWN CAIRO QUIET THIS MORNING!!
MORE PROTESTS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON!!
SERVICE WILL GO AHEAD AS SCHEDULED,
BUT EXERCISE CAUTION!!!
As you will be aware, over 70 Al Ahly football fans were killed on Wednesday night following the match against El Masry in Port Said.
Many of the Al Ahly supporters are blaming the SCAF and police for the deaths.
Whether or not this is true, the situation is very tense and there has been trouble in central Cairo overnight, although not near the church.
This morning’s service will go ahead as scheduled, but please exercise caution as you travel.
For further information, call me, Iain, on 0106 450 7377 or Erin on 0100 203 5745 and continue to check this page.
Please pray for the families and friends of those who have died or been injured, and for the continuing uncertain situation in Egypt.
