Government officials in Egypt are stepping up their campaign to encourage tourists back to the country, following the revolution in 2011.

Antiquities Minister Muhammad Ibrahim re-opened the Pyramid of Chefren (Khafre) and six ancient tombs at Giza after a long restoration project.

He said he was keen to stress that Egypt is a safe country for tourists.
