Egypt intensifies security at antiquities sites: state news

Egypt’s antiquities minister issued orders on Wednesday to intensify security at antiquities sites across the country in coordination with the Interior Ministry, in comments reported by state news agency MENA on Wednesday. A suicide bomb attack near a tourist site in the southern city of Luxor that left four Egyptians wounded marks an escalation of attacks on tourist sites in the country.

Smart move! And, kudos to Egypt! We’ve seen the horrific destruction of ancient temples and relics by ISIS in Iraq and Syria. I’m sure they’d love to do the same in Egypt. So, very glad to see this. 🙂
