The British government has lifted its ban on flights out of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. At least 10 planes will depart from the region on Friday. Flights into the Sinai peninusla are still restricted, and those leaving Sharm airport are subject to strict security measures, which include a ban on checking any luggage into the hold. The British government had announced a ban Wednesday on fears that a bomb brought down a Russian airliner last week, leaving 224 dead. Officials in London fear that security at the airport is not tight enough and they are continuing to advise the Egyptian security forces on improving safety measures.
