Britain is suspending flights to and from Sharm el-Sheikh after US and British officials contended that a bomb downed a Russian airliner in Egypt last weekend. UK leader David Cameron is due to hold talks with his Egyptian counterpart in London.
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.
Rescuers believe they have found some of the wreckage from Cairo-bound EgyptAir flight MS804 in the Mediterranean Sea. The plane went down overnight on a Paris-to-Cairo flight, with 66 people aboard.
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.
Egyptian investigators have found traces of explosives on the remains of victims of last May's EgyptAir plane crash. Terrorist motives had been played down and no group has claimed responsibility.
