All sites in Luxor open for tourists

Luxor News Blog (Jane Akshar)

Jane has been keeping readers updated with the situation at Karnak. Mansour Boraik of the SCA phoned Jane to reiterate that ALL sites in Upper Egypt are open and welcome visitors. Jane had to explain that the lack of tourists was down to advice being delivered by the Embassies, including the U.K.'s Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The good news is that the FCO, amongst others, has changed the advice being given, saying that they no longer advise against non-essential travel to Luxor.
