The second round of the Presidential elections took place on 16 and 17 June. The official announcement of the results will be on 21 June. There may be increased tension and demonstrations during and after this period, especially in Tahrir Square in central Cairo. According to the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office), demonstrations are frequent in larger cities across Egypt, particularly Tahrir Square, Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and Ismailia. Demonstrations are often on Fridays but can take place at other times. British nationals should avoid demonstrations and large crowds, and follow developments on the news. There have been reports of sexual assaults on women during some demonstrations in Tahrir Square. The FCO advises women to take extra care when near the square, particularly when alone.
