Egyptian Tourism Officials Stunned by Morsi Appointment

Hundreds of people in Luxor protested outside the governor’s office Monday after Morsi appointed Adel el-Khayat to lead the province. El-Khayat is not in the Muslim Brotherhood. Rather, he’s a part of the radical religious movement al-Gamaa al-Islamiya’s political party. Al-Gamaa members claimed credit for killing 58 tourists during a 1997 attack at a temple in Luxor.
