British Tourists Struggle To Get Home From Egypt
Russia suspended flights to Egypt on Friday, even as some flights to Britain from Sharm el-Sheikh resumed. This comes as British intelligence officials say it could have been a bomb that took down a jet bound for Russia last Saturday, killing all 224 people on board. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson gets the latest on the investigation from the BBC’s Paul Adams.
He then speaks with Lorraine Mudzimu, who landed in the resort town on Saturday and is scheduled to fly back to the U.K. next week. Until then, she says, she’s enjoying her vacation and taking in travel advisories skeptically.
