at the same time, there is a tense situation along the borders of Egypt. The north and the south of Sinai as well as the Suez is in a state of high alert. There the police are receiving reinforcements earlier in the day Islamists there attacked a local airport. We're also hearing reports that Egypt has closed its border with Gaza. Now there has been a number of instances recently in that vicinity.
