Egypt's tourist resorts excluded from terrorist warning

The Foreign Office has warned against travel to most of the areas surrounding Egypt's tourist resorts.

Egyptian Armed Forces and Ministry of Interior declared a state of 'High Alert' in Sinai on Saturday following reports that Jihadist groups might conduct terrorist attacks against the army and security forces in North and South Sinai.

The FCO has advised against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and all but essential travel to the South Sinai region with the exception of the Red Sea Resorts of Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Nuweiba and Dahab.

It has also excluded road travel between these resorts and transfers between the resorts and airports of Taba and Sharm El Sheikh from its warning.
