Egypt terror threat level raised by UK Foreign Office

The Foreign Office said there was a "high risk of attacks" in Egypt

The UK's Foreign Office has raised its terror threat level for Egypt from "general" to "high".

It follows reports of an al-Qaeda plot to attack Western holidaymakers, foiled by Egyptian police in northern Sinai close to the border with Gaza.

The Foreign Office said there was now a "high threat of terrorism throughout Egypt, including the Sinai"

So after reading this..... my main concern is ..... Will we be safe in Sharm? Going on 13th December for 2 weeks..... is anyone else concerned?

For this reason, we advise against all but essential travel to the Governorate of South Sinai, with the exception of (i) the Red Sea Resorts including those in the entire region of Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Nuweiba and Dahab; (ii) road travel between these resorts; and iii) transfers between the resrrts and the airports of Taba and Sharm el Sheikh.

I am going in 11 days and can't wait
