Iraq to Evacuate its Citizens from Egypt

The wheel has certainly turned:

BAGHDAD (AP) — The Iraqi government says it will evacuate its citizens living in Egypt for free as the chaos in this North African nation enters its sixth day.Sunday's offer is a role reversal since many of the Iraqis living in Egypt fled their homeland because of rampant violence, with near-daily attacks still continuing.

Transportation Ministry spokesman Aqeel Hadi Kawthar tells The Associated Press that "we will send whatever planes needed to those who want to leave Egypt." He says the number of flights will depend on demand.
