Cars and buses are being forced to stop as they are surrounded by vendors demanding that people stop in their shops, or simply straight out demanding money. Many tour operators have reduced their services or even stopped. Tourists are being told to dress even more carefully than normal and perhaps alcohol being banned from sale due to strengthening Islamic law. Some even regard the pyramids etc as being idolatrous to Islamic principles and at risk of damage or destruction.
And on the other hand the government is worried about declining revenue due to drop in tourist numbers. Hmm, something to do with safety perchance? Yet surprisingly 11 million tourists travelled to Egypt in the 9 months to September.
