Brother, sister drown in hotel pool during church trip
LUXOR, EGYPT - OCTOBER 23: The swimming pool area at a high end hotel stands empty beside the Nile River shore on October 23, 2013 near Luxor, Egypt. Luxor, one of Egypt's major tourist hot-spots, has struggled to attract visitors since a popular uprising overthrew former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in early 2011. The dip in tourist numbers is contributing directly to a rise in unemployment in the southern Egyptian city. The tourist industry has further dwindled since Egypt's first democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi was overthrown by the Egyptian Military in July, 2013. Major hotels in Luxor are reporting occupancy rates as low as 8% in recent months and many airlines have halted direct flights from cities in Europe to Luxor, further discouraging tourism to the Egyptian city famous for its archaeological sites.
