Having just returned from the Conservative Middle East Council trip to Egypt, we were able to see the devastating effects to the local economy in Sharm el Sheikh on the continuing ban on flights to that region. We were also able to meet with the president and hear first hand from the Egyptians their concerns that they are being singled out in some way.

With the free movement within the EU, it's very easy to move around the EU with weapons, quite often undocumented,” said Smith.

?It does help to save some energy,? said Sherbini. ?And getting to the later stages fresh is important.? Fresh or under-played, Sherbini still looks likely to continue high speed progress, for her next opponent is a surprise survivor -? Emily Whitlock, a 23-year-old who reached the quarter-finals for the first time with an 11-4, 11-7, 11-9 win over her eighth-seeded English compatriot Alison Waters. Already the British Open?s second day was suggesting that Egypt, which created history last year by becoming the first country to provide all four finalists, is tightening its grip on both competitions again. Tarek Momen, the eighth-seed from Cairo, won a superb encounter between two of the fastest men on the circuit, by 11-6, 11-8, 20-18 against Paul Coll, the world number 16 from New Zealand. Coll, who is regarded by many as the best New Zealander since former world champion Ross Norman a quarter of a century ago, led 7-2 in the second game, had eight points to win the third game, and still ended up losing three straight.

Ebu Hanzala himself then spent some time in Egypt, where he apparently became involved with Al Qaeda before returning to Turkey in 2008. According to the now defunct Turkish daily Radikal , during this trip he was accompanied by six other Hizbullah (or Turkish Hezbollah) members and they received regular payments from “Germany,” allowing them to concentrate on their religious-ideological training in Egypt.

The British directive will block carry-on electronics larger than 16 centimeters in length, 9.3 centimeters in width and with a depth of over 1.5 centimeters on direct flights from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia. "Direct flights to the U.K. from these destinations continue to operate to the U.K. subject to these new measures being in place," a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters. "We think these steps are necessary and proportionate to allow passengers to travel safely." Terrorism analyst Greg Barton of Australia's Deakin University said the action seems to be linked to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the terror group's affiliate active in Yemen and Saudi Arabia that has targeted airlines in the past. "They're clearly concerned about airports that are regarded as not being up to scratch on security, and other airports that are, while very good, dealing with massive flows of passengers that are coming through," Barton told VOA.

The discovery earned the scientists the award for one of the current ten most important archeological discoveries in Egypt from the Minister of Antiquities in Cairo.
