Protest at U.S. Embassy Today
 
This warden message is to advise American citizens to avoid visiting the U.S. Embassy today (Thursday, June 10, 2010).
 
The U.S. Embassy has been advised that a demonstration is planned at our location in Ben Ashour at approximately noon today, concerning the situation in Gaza.  In order to ensure your safety and security, please avoid visiting the Embassy and traveling in the Jerraba Street-Ben Ashour area throughout the day.
 
The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy is located in the Ben Ashour neighborhood on Jeraba Street behind the former Libyan-Swiss Clinic. Our phone numbers are 021-337-3100 during business hours or 091-366-2696 (after-hours number for emergencies involving American citizens only).
 
Americans traveling abroad should regularly monitor the U.S. Embassy’s website and the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs’ website, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts can be found.  The U.S. Embassy also encourages U.S. citizens to review “A Safe Trip Abroad,” which includes valuable security information for those both residing and traveling abroad.  U.S. citizens may also call the Office of Overseas Citizens Services in the United States for the latest travel information.  The Office of Overseas Citizens Services can be reached from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, Monday through Friday, by calling 1-888-407-4747 from within the United States and Canada, or by calling (202) 501-4444 from other countries.
