The reports from Jane Akhsar and others is that the Valley of the Kings and the West Bank is safe - for now. The concerns are these:
- Breakouts have been reported from two local prisons and it is feared that the security situation might deteriorate
- The army are protecting the Valley of the Kings and reportedly Karnak and Luxor temples, but other sites are protected by "neighbourhood watch groups"
- Although Jane reports the West Bank to be quiet, over on the East Bank Luxor is "more tricksy" as she says.
