Egypt's tourism minister: Webcams will prove we're safe | Égypt-actus |

Egypt's tourism minister plans to install live webcams in holiday hotspots to prove the country's industry remains healthy.

Hisham Zazou told CNN that cameras will broadcast live video of holiday makers on the beach "basking in the sun."

He added: "This will give more credibility... when [tourists] see it, they will come."

Egypt's beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh and the ancient Pyramids in Giza have long pulled tourism revenue, giving a vital boost to the Egyptian economy.

But Egypt's image as a tourism destination has suffered since the Arab Spring erupted in Tunisia just over two years ago and spread across the Middle East. (CNN)
