Most tourists back from Egypt

Dutch holiday firms have so far brought back 2,700 tourists from Egypt and all 4,200 are expected home by the end of Tuesday, news agency ANP said.

While the airport in Cairo is said to be chaotic, there are few problems at the regional airports close to popular seaside resorts.
Holiday firms decided to bring their customers home after the foreign ministry advised against all travel to Egypt because of the anti-government protests.
