The Red Sea security authorities tightened inspection procedures at highway and border checkpoints on Sunday, particularly the checkpoint at the 85km mark on Safaga-Qena highway and the 5km mark Safaga checkpoint for vehicles coming from Upper Egypt, as well as checkpoints on roads from Lower Egypt to the southern border of Egypt. Control had been enforced since last Sunday and the two bombs attacks which have hurt Egypt, during controls each controlled car need to say where it wants to go and why. According to Qena residents, the security authorities justified this measure by saying that the defendants in the Tanta and Alexandria bombings were from the governorate. The Interior Ministry had announced that 16 Qena residents are suspected of involvement in the bombings.
