Australian citizens to be evacuated from Egypt

The situation in Egypt must be dire because at this present moment our PM Julia Gillard is holding a press conference on ABC24 discussing the fact that the Federal Government has chartered a Qantas 747 to evacuate Australian citizens from Egypt. She said that she understands the desire of Egyptians for the freedom and democracy that we take for granted, however she didn't state that she stands in solidarity with the cause, but hopes that the military as well as protesters avoid violent encounters so that there is no death or injury. Obviously she hasn't seen the reports coming out of Egypt.
