BERN, Switzerland — Switzerland is advising its citizens to leave Egypt until further notice.

The Foreign Ministry on Sunday advises Swiss currently in Egypt to temporarily leave the country because of the fragile security situation. A note posted on the ministry website advises using available commercial transportation.

Swiss citizens are also advised to avoid all nonessential travel to Egypt.

The ministry says Swiss consular officials will be sent to Cairo's airport after a curfew ends Monday to assist citizens who require help.
