He said Anwar Abu Glory captain guides the leader Mohamed Kamal "Polish language" that may be offered on Monday morning, was beaten by the street vendors after they harassed one of the tourists who were with him in the West Valley of the Kings in Luxor.

He added that the glory of the phenomenon has spread dramatically recently as a result of insecurity and negative tourist police.

Guides and student demonstrators to change the crew in order to preserve the entire tourist police on tourism and tourists, which made it clear that the presence of street vendors and thugs archaeological areas are given a negative image of Egypt.

For his part, tried to Major General Hassan Mohamed Hassan, assistant interior minister and security chief Luxor persuade the protesters to meet with a delegation of them within the Directorate, but they refused to meet within the Directorate, and insisted on his contract in-house union workers, and went with the director of security and security leaders to maintain the headquarters branch of the union.'

In essence, the powers that be have promised the tour guides that some extra security will be in place within about 4 days. If nothing is done by next Wednesday, the tour guides are intending to strike for the day all over Egypt, and visit the antiquities to ensure that travel agents are not using unlicensed guides in their place.
Or so my tour guide friend told me today.
