Egypt's government is stepping up security at Cairo airport as it prepares to fly Palestinians freed under the Gilad Schalit prisoner exchange out of the country, an Egyptian intelligence source said on Tuesday.

Cairo airport raised security to emergency level as it prepared to transport 40 of the Palestinians to three countries as part of the swap deal, the intelligence source said.

The source said the prisoners were being sent to Turkey, Syria and Qatar and that their travel formalities were being overseen by Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal.
