Egypt is calling on its citizens in France to exercise caution amid the ongoing protests in the country, warning that riots could break out in the upcoming days.
The Egyptian consulate in Paris has released a statement advising Egyptians to avoid areas of unrest in French cities.
The consulate also advised Egyptians to carry personal identification while moving in cities and contact the consulate if they face problems.
France is anticipating further protests in different areas after weeks of demonstrations over increased fuel prices.
Last Saturday, Paris saw riots deemed the country’s worst in decades, with scores of people arrested and injured.
France has said it will use “exceptional means” to deal with the unrest, deploying 89,000 police officers across the country; the largest such deployment since 1968.
Many Parisian shops, museums and sites, including the Eiffel Tower, will be closed on Saturday.
The protests, which erupted on 17 November, have shown no signs of easing despite the French government’s announcement that it will temporarily suspend fuel tax increases.
Protesters are now calling for the resignation of French President Emmanuel Macron.
