A wall has been built in the country of Egypt around an area that’s popular with tourists. Why do we think they might have done that?

Egyptian authorities have recently completed a 22-mile (36km) wall around the tourist resort of Sharm El-Sheikh. Anyone entering the city by road will now have to pass through one of four gates equipped with cameras and scanners. The government believe it will help protect tourism at the Red Sea resort, which has faced many challenges over the past 10 years, meaning fewer holiday-makers have been visiting the resort.
