PYRAMID PERIL: Riots and killings after the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi have delivered a severe blow to Egypt's tourism industry.

STEERING CLEAR: Arrivals at Egyptian airports have dropped by more than 40 percent from Sunday through Tuesday compared to the same time the previous week. About 13,000 tourists, mostly from Germany and Italy, have left the Red Sea resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada with only 3,000 arrivals.

HEAVY PRICE: Tourism had recently accounted for more than 11 percent of the country's gross domestic product and nearly 20 percent of its foreign currency revenue.
