A BOMBING in Egypt has injured at least 17 people after a tourist bus near the pyramids of Giza was targeted.
But what should Brits be aware of if travelling to Egypt and is it still safe to travel to?
The UK Foreign Office has yet to update their current warning following the attack near Cairo.
However, they do warn: “Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Egypt.
“You should be vigilant at all times and follow the advice of the Egyptian authorities and your travel company, if you have one.
“There have been threats to western nationals, institutions and businesses posted on websites and social media.”
“You should avoid crowded places and gatherings (including in or around religious sites) during religious festivals or times of heightened.
“Take extra care over local holiday weekends, as some terrorist attacks have occurred during these times.”
All travel in North Sinai is advised against, while travel to South Sinai and the area west of the Nile Valley are advised against except for essential travel.
Brits who are need urgent assistance can call the police on 122 or the British Embassy in Cairo on + 2 (02) 2791 6000.
Approximately 320,000 Brits visited Egypt in 2017, with a surge of visitors in early 2018.
Last year, another bus was bombed near Cairo which killed three Vietnamese tourists and an Egyptian tour guide.
It was the first attack to target foreign tourists in almost two years.
Egypt has struggled with tourism following a number of terrorist attacks since 2015, when a flight from Sharm el Sheikh to Russia crashed following an explosive device, killing 224 people.
Following the incident, flights to and from Sharm el Sheikh were banned with them yet to be resumed, although flights to other parts of Egypt are still operating.
Despite the terror warnings, demand for Egypt holidays are up 89 per cent, according to Thomas Cook.
Destinations such as Hurghada are popular with Brits looking for cheap holiday resorts, with seven nights all-inclusive starting from just £319 per person.
However, Brits should always make sure to take out travel insurance if travelling to Egypt on holiday in case of any problems abroad.
