So are teachers still deserting their posts in the countries to the South of the combat zone ? No sign of that where I am in Saudi Arabia. People are jumpy but life goes on. So much for the dire prophecies about anti-Western activities.

As I work for the British Council in Saudi and therefore am classed as British embassy non-essential staff, I have been withdrawn from my post for the meantime. Basically, the BC have closed down their teaching operation in about 4 or 5 Middle-East countries. So, it's just a matter of wating around to be called back.

Very glad to hear that there is no reason to be worried about living there. Most of the teachers suspected there would be no threats to safety there, but we are having to follow orders basically.
