2 Washington U. students safely out of Egypt

 ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Two students from Washington University in St. Louis have made it safely out of Egypt.

  
The students were studying abroad in Egypt when political unrest erupted last week.
  
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that one of the students, 20-year-old Allegra Skurka, made it to Greece and planned to fly Wednesday to Jordan, where she will finish her overseas studies.
  
The other student is now in Prague and hasn't yet made plans to complete his overseas experience.
  
Skurka told the Post-Dispatch that as unrest unfolded, she holed up in a Cairo apartment with 20 other study-abroad students.
