Egyptian officials say European, Russian and Middle Eastern teams are inspecting security measures at Cairo's international airport relating to passenger and cargo aircraft travelling to their countries.

The head of Cairo's international airport, Maj. Gen. Ahmed Genina says the officials from Russia, Holland, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar are examining the scanning of passengers, cargo and baggage as they enter the airport and make their way to aircraft. Security guards and caterers are also being inspected.

Several countries and airlines have suspended new flights to Egypt because of security concerns as suspicions focused on the possibility that a bomb caused an Oct. 31 plane crash of a Russian airliner that killed all 224 people onboard.
