The United Nations will evacuate about 400 staff and family members from Egypt today and will temporarily base them in Cyprus, a spokesman said.

As many as four charter flights will transport the staff to Cyprus from this afternoon, Rolando Gomez, a spokesman for the UN force in Cyprus, said in a phone interview today. They will be temporarily relocated in Cyprus due to the security situation in Egypt, he said.

Gomez said some members of UN staff will remain in Cairo to carry out essential tasks.
