THE Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) has urged all Singaporean students studying in Egypt to return to Singapore. In a statement on Friday, it strongly advised those who have chosen to remain there to leave. Its advice for those still in Cairo was to 'exercise extreme caution, monitor local news and stay away from troubled areas'. The statement was issued as another group of 102 students returned home on Friday morning. So far, 190 students have come back. Their return was facilitated by Muis, the Singapore embassy in Cairo, the Singaporean Students Welfare Assembly in Egypt (Perkemas) and Singapore Airlines. Five more are expected tomorrow. Most attend Al-Azhar University's various campuses in Egypt. Thirty-one other Singaporeans, including some working in Egypt, have also returned. Parents can call the Muis hotline at 6258-1502 for the latest updates.
