Security strengthened at Egypt's ancient attractions

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has ordered the strengthening of security at ancient monuments across the country.

It follows a suicide bomb attack at one of the country's most popular tourist sites, the Karnak temple complex in the city of Luxor.

Last week, two members of Egypt's tourism and antiquities police force were shot dead on a road near the pyramids at Giza.
