Repatriated tourists back in Netherlands

31st January 2011, Comments 0 comments


The first Dutch tourists to be repatriated from the Egyptian resorts of Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh arrived at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport at four o' clock on Monday morning.

Travel organisations decided on Sunday to start repartiating tourists from the North African country, where mass demonstrations against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak have led to increasing insecurity.

Some of the tourists complained about not having access to the internet and not being able to leave their hotels. Dutch tourists returning from Sharm el-Sheikh said they had not noticed much of the unrest, but tourists from Hurghada reported there had been disturbances in the streets.
