Civil unrest left Shenzhen citizens stranded in airport

Civil unrest left Shenzhen citizens stranded in airportMore than 227 Shenzhen citizens were stranded at Cairo airports when flights were delayed and canceled due to the massive protest going on in Egypt against President Hosni Mubarak. They are unable to leave due to a government imposed curfew in the city.

Protests have rocked Egypt when demonstrators demanded the ouster of the Country’s long time autocratic president Hosni Muburak. Tensions increased when Mohammed ElBaradei, a former top official and a high profile opponent of Mubarak returned to Cairo to provide a leader for the massive movement was placed in house arrest.

The 227 citizens that are stranded at the Cairo airport comes from Shenzhen OCT International Service, Bonanza China Travel Service and Shenzhen Tese International Travel Service. Passengers are safe but soon will be facing a shortage of food and water. Travel agencies are now trying to find ways to send them home to china. The Chinese administration have also issued notices suspending all travel to Egypt.

46 primary school students from Dongchuan Road Primary School are also stranded since they were invited by the Chinese Embassy in Eygpt to perform in a musical and were scheduled to returned last January 29. Unrest in Egypt still continues and have already claimed 150 lives.
