    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 7 - The US embassy in Egypt has warned its citizens to avoid universities and public transport, after recent attacks on a Nile Delta train in which six policemen were killed and a bomb that exploded in the Cairo underground. The embassy warned American citizens residing in the city and tourists to ''remain vigilant''. Embassy staff have been prohibited from using the underground, trains and public buses. It also warned US citizens to avoid universities, especially the ones in Cairo and Alexandria, since ''over the past month, potentially dangerous activities, to include violent protests, terrorist attacks, and increased police and military presence, have been observed at local Cairo universities.''
