Egyptians top visitors to historical sites during Eid: Antiquities minister
Egypt’s historical sites have been visited by large numbers of Egyptians during Eid, according to Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

Luxor and Aswan are also popular destinations for Egyptians during this year's Eid festival, Ibrahim added.
