Reuters , Friday 6 Nov 2015

Britain is working with the Egyptian authorities to bring tourists back to the UK safely, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday, calling the situation in the Sharm El-Sheikh resort "difficult and fluid".

Earlier, easyJet said Egyptian authorities had given just two of its 10 planned flights permission to take off from the resort, throwing into chaos British attempts to repatriate thousands of holidaymakers.

"We are working closely with authorities on the ground to ensure that we get British nationals home quickly and safely," Cameron's spokesman added. "This is a difficult and fluid situation."
