Adel Mohamed al-Khayat

A protester carries stones in one hand and a beer bottle in the other as he kneels in front of burning tyres set by protesters in front of Luxor governorate building to protest against the newly-appointed governor, Adel Mohamed al-Khayat, who was a member of the militant group, al-Gamaa al-Islamiya, in Luxor, June 19, 2013. Al-Khayat was a member of the militant group blamed for slaughtering 58 tourists in Egypt's Valley of the Queens; today he's promising to keep visitors safe. Khayat's appointment by President Mohamed Mursi as governor of the city of Luxor has triggered howls of protest, with demonstrators protesting for a third day on Wednesday and one critic calling it "the last nail in the coffin of tourism".
