I'm confused. If this happened two months ago then why have the British government only just halted flights to Egypt?

A government spokesman said: " We investigated the reported incident at the time and concluded that it was not a targeted attack and was likely to be connected to routine exercises being conducted by the Egyptian military in the area at the time."
