Special forces deployed at Sharm al-Sheikh airport

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's military has sent special forces to Sharm al-Sheikh airport, where foreign tourists have been trying to board flights in the aftermath of a Russian airplane crash some Western officials say may have been caused by a bomb.

A Reuters cameraman saw several vehicles transporting special forces in the airport complex. Security officials said they were there to boost security for tourists.
