Investigators from three countries are set to continue the search for what brought down a Russian airliner over Egypt, killing all 224 people on board. At this hour, there are few concrete answers as to what really happened.
Gunmen have carried out one of the deadliest attacks in Egypt in two years, attacking a remote army outpost in the Sinai Peninsula with a suicide car bomb. The attackers took weapons and ammunition before fleeing.
Israel has closed one of its border crossings with Egypt, citing fears of an "imminent" attack in the area. It comes after twin bombings targeting Coptic Christian churches in Egypt killed over 40 people on Sunday.
The recent fatal knife attack on German nationals at a popular Egyptian resort is yet another setback for the country's troubled tourism sector. Industry officials have called for immediate action.
Egypt has said that its investigation into the Russian plane crash shows no sign of "illegal intervention." A Kremlin spokesperson reiterated Moscow's conclusion that a bomb - claimed by "IS" - brought down the aircraft.
