Britain says resuming flights from Sharm al-Sheikh to UK

Britain will resume flights from the Egyptian resort of Sharm al-Sheikh on Friday after agreeing on additional security measures with Cairo, the prime minister's office said.
Britain suspended flights after the crash on Saturday of a Russian airliner over the Sinai Peninsula. Prime Minister David Cameron hosted Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi on Thursday and discussed the situation.
