CAIRO — Foreign tourists and Egyptians on Saturday began flocking to Cairo's main airport, scrambling to find flights out of the country as days of often violent protests that forced the resignation of the government show few signs of abating.

An official at Cairo International Airport said El Al was trying to arrange a special flight Saturday to take roughly 200 Israeli tourists out of the country. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with the media.
