Slovak woman looking for her son in Egypt takes sanctuary in the Czech embassy

Katarína Azab, a Slovak woman who has been searching for her kidnapped son in Egypt for two years, has already spent two days at the Czech Embassy in Cairo, the TASR newswire reported on January 31. Like many others she has been left incommunicado in a city currently in the midst of public unrest and Czech embassy employees are recommending that she not leave the embassy. The internet has not been operating for a fourth day and sending a text message via mobile phone messages is not possible, TASR wrote. Azab has been in Egypt looking for her young son Adam who she says was kidnapped by his Egyptian father. She has turned to a number of international and domestic institutions for help and the case has received wide media coverage.
