Egypt tourism minister resigns

  • Published by Vedat
Egypt's minister of tourism has resigned following the appointment of a new governor in the temple city of Luxor who belongs to an Islamist party linked to a deadly attack on tourists.
Hesham Zazou said that following the appointment of Adel al-Khayat – a member of the political arm of ex-Islamic militant group Gamaa Islamiya – he "can’t continue in his role as minister of tourism".

Prime Minister Hesham Qandil has refused Zazou's resignation and asked him to remain in his post until the situation is reviewed.
