On his website, http://www.drhawass.com, you can read updates about the situation in Egypt from Dr. Zahi Hawass, the newly appointed Egyptian Minister of Antiquities.

Here is a recent snippet he posted on his website.

February 2nd: I would like the people of the world to know that today all of the Egyptian monuments are safe. All the archaeological sites in Aswan, such as the Temple of Philae, the Unfinished Obelisk, the Island of Kalabsha, the Tombs of the Nomarchs, and Elephantine Island are completely safe. The temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo are also safe. All of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Tombs of the Nobles, and the temples of Luxor and Karnak are safe.

The ARCE Chapter in Washington, DC (ARCE-DC) sponsors, on average, ten free lectures and one seminar a year, plus occasional social events. We sponsor tours to Egypt and organize occasional bus trips to museums that are featuring exhibitions on Egypt. We maintain close contact with the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, and the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, D.C., which frequently provides a speaking venue for our lecturers. Our lectures are otherwise coordinated with and held at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Our chapter has approximately 100 members and the average attendance at lectures is approximately 40 people. When held at the Egyptian Embassy, the number can exceed 100 attendees.
