Exim tours hastens return of clients from Egypt

The Czech travel agency Exim tours is hastening the return of clients currently in Egypt, over growing fears that the security situation in the country, especially in Hurghada, will worsen in the coming days. Its last client in the country is due to return home on Thursday. In all, two thousand Czechs have stayed on for the moment but are also expected to return home in the coming days. The departure of tourists as well as the cancellation of upcoming package vacations represents losses in the millions. Last Friday, the Czech Foreign Ministry warned Czechs not to travel to Egypt in light of deadly violence and growing unrest.
