For a second time this week, Bulgaria's Ministry of Interior has advised Bulgarian citizens to avoid traveling to Egypt due to the unsafe situation in the Arab country where the presidency had declared a state of emergency.

Bulgaria's Interior Ministry warned Bulgarian citizens for whom the travel is inevitable against taking night- or Friday- flights to the Arab country.

Bulgarians have been told not to take photos of the rallies in Egypt, to keep their ID papers always with them and not to forget to register in the Bulgarian Embassy in the country.

The state of emergency in Egypt is scheduled to last for a month.

Egypt's presidency declared a state of emergency after scores of people were killed when security forces stormed protest camps in Cairo, occupied by supporters of former president Mohammed Morsi, who was deposed in early July
