CAIRO  — The US Embassy told Americans in Egypt to consider leaving the country as soon as possible.

The Sunday morning travel warning said the Embassy will update Americans about departure assistance as soon as possible. It said US citizens should avoid travel to Egypt because of unrest, violence, and ongoing demonstrations against President Hosni Mubarak's government.

The warning was an escalation in the assessment of the situation by the US government, which previously had advised against non-essential travel to Egypt.
