CAIRO — Egypt's official Middle East News Agency said Friday that more than 160,000 foreigners have left the country since the start of mass protests demanding the president's ouster.

Airport officials told MENA that figure only reflected departures through Cairo airport. It did not include the number of tourists who left from smaller airports at the popular Red Sea resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada, or the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria.
