Fence Around Sharm - Not True

This blog was one of the first to mention the building of a fence around Sharm El-Sheikh to protect tourists yesterday. It has been widely reported today, even by the BBC. But now it appears it is not true - the governor of South Sinai says only concrete walls, no more than 80 cm high, are being built near junctions to stop camels straying on to the road and causing accidents. It was reported by the official MENA news agency, picked up by Reuters and Haaretz this evening.
