The BBC is reporting that Egyptian Army tanks have allegedly surrounded the embassies of the United States and United Kingdom. This comes after Israel evacuated its entire embassy staff via helicopter. This is coming in through their live blog, and further details appear scarce. The BBC is quoting an al-Jazeera cable:

2125: Tanks have surrounded the US and British embassies in Cairo, Al-Jazeera reports.

This could be a huge, huge problem. This is similar to 1979 when the Islamic rebels took the US Embassy and held hostages for 444 days.

If they take complete control the tanks make no difference, until something like that happens the tanks keep them alive.
