Egypt's famous pyramids in Giza have been closed as mass demonstrations continue in Cairo. A few tourists stood at the gates of the tourist spot which is usually crowded with visitors.

Access to the capital has been restricted with limited bus, train and internal flight services.

Meanwhile the exodus of travellers from Egypt continues with thousands waiting to fly out of the country.
