Travelers scramble in Cairo
The Associated Press reports that airlines have canceled a number of flights, the United States is cautioning citizens against travel to Egypt, and tourism agencies are giving travelers the option to reschedule.
Egypt does not need to lose the tourism business, estimated at $10 billion a year. Egypt's military has closed off access to the country's treasured pyramids in Giza, normally a very busy tourist area.
Tour operators of the Association of French Tour Operators suspended all departures for this weekend to Egypt and travelers already on the ground are being diverted to less volatile areas.
