A TV crew interviews a tourist on the shore at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, November 10, 2015. Tourism in Sharm al-Sheikh was picking up again after years of political turmoil, with so many Russians enjoying the sun and fun that local beach aerobics instructors used the visitors' own language rather than Arabic or English. Life was at last starting to look good for residents of the Red Sea resort, but that was before an airliner taking Russian tourists home broke up over the Sinai Peninsula, where Islamic State militants suspected of planting a bomb on the plane are waging an insurgency. Now the future looks grim for thousands of Egyptians, from taxi drivers to diving instructors, who flocked to Sharm al-Sheikh to find jobs. One tour company official predicted holidays might now have to be discounted by up to 50 percent. REUTERS/Asmaa Waguih

Police inspects cars going into the airport of the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, November 7, 2015. Egypt criticised its foreign partners on Saturday for ignoring calls to work harder to combat terrorism, after Western intelligence sources said there were signs Islamist militants may have bombed the Russian plane which crashed in Sinai. An Islamic State affiliate has claimed responsibility for the crash of the Airbus A321 operated by a Russian carrier that was bringing holidaymakers home from the Sinai Peninsula resort of Sharm al-Sheikh one week ago. All 224 people on board were killed in what the militants described as revenge for Russian air strikes against Islamist fighters in Syria. REUTERS/Asmaa Waguih??
