The United States will tighten security on flights leaving a number of airports in Egypt, US officials have announced.
In a statement, US Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said that "out of an abundance of caution", he and the head of the Transport Security Administrator had "identified a series of interim, precautionary enhancements to aviation security with respect to commercial flights bound for the United States from certain foreign airports in the region."
This will include stricter screening of items before they are brought on board aircraft, he added.
It comes amid fears that a plane crash which killed 224 passengers and crew may have been caused by a bomb on board.
