Luxor, Egypt, is a tourist destination and a tourist mecca, but its history has also been shaped by the power of the Islamic State group.
And now, the tourism industry is struggling to keep up with the onslaught of tourists coming to the region.
The Middle East is the home of Egypt’s Islamic revolution, and tourism has become a key part of its economy, which is struggling with the economic downturn.
Luxor is home to more than 3 million people, making it one of the largest and most popular tourist destinations in the region, but the threat of terrorist attacks has taken its toll.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) took control of the Sinai Peninsula in 2014, cutting off the coast to the sea and the Red Sea to the east and south of the peninsula.
It declared an Islamic caliphate and began seizing all of Egypt, including Luxor.
Egypt has been at the center of the fighting in Syria and Iraq, and the tourism sector has been affected.
It is estimated that about $60 million is lost annually to the loss of tourist revenue.
Tourism is a major source of revenue for Egypt, which relies on tourism to make up more than 60% of its budget.
However, tourism also attracts foreign fighters and foreign fighters are among the largest groups that have pledged allegiance to ISIL.
The number of tourists visiting Egypt from abroad increased by 17% in the first quarter of this year, according to the International Chamber of Commerce of Egypt.
It’s believed that some of the increase could be linked to the influx of foreign tourists from Europe, which saw an average of 17,000 foreign tourists per day during the first three months of the year.
Tourists also are turning to Egypt for escape from war and poverty in neighboring Syria.
It was estimated that some 2 million people fled the conflict and its aftermath in Syria, and many others are now trying to reach Europe.
The country’s economic problems and the threat to its tourism industry are leading to a severe shortage of foreign currency, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report last year.
The Egyptian government has also put its own security at risk.
The government has shut down nearly half of all its banks in order to prevent the flow of money to the ISIL, according the Egyptian Daily News.
The government has announced a plan to create a new bank to provide foreign currency loans to the Egyptian people, and has also suspended the country’s international airport, a major airport for tourists, due to the growing number of foreign fighters.
Egypt’s tourism industry also has been hit by the loss in international tourists due to ISIL attacks, and this has contributed to a decrease in tourist arrivals in Egypt.
Tourism revenue was about $1.3 billion in 2016, but that has dropped to about $650 million, according a survey by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism.
Tourist arrivals dropped by 9% in January from January to March 2017.
The drop is mostly due to a fall in foreign tourists, which fell by 3.7% to 2.8 million.
However the country is still one of Egypts top tourist destinations, with more than 100 million visitors a year, more than double that of 2015.
