Egypt: Israeli travel warning attempt to harm economy

Abdel Fadil Shusha said Saturday morning that the situation in the area was quiet and secure and that Israel has been used to publishing such travel warnings during Egyptian holiday seasons since the 2004 Taba attacks.Al-Arabi al-Husseini, leader of the Nuweiba and Taba city council, reported that Israeli tourists were traveling to Sinai despite the warning, and that not a single tourist has left Sinai.
