The NYT reports that Prime Minister, David Cameron announced the suspension of all flights between Britain and the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh.

The article cites US sources hinting that Cameron’s decision was premature. Internationally, many question the effectiveness of Obama’s interventions in both Syria and Iraq.

Personally, I think that David Cameron acted responsibly in the interests of UK citizens. According to an NBC article there appear to be security concerns at the Sharm el Sheikh airport, where a number of staff have been removed.

Whilst David Cameron may have precipitated matters, focus will now turn to Russia and for Putin’s response. Today this blog  looks at two very different responses from Russia’s media, in Pravda and TASS.

Why does David Cameron not propose a resolution at the UN Security Council?

Thoughts?

According to this deeply worrying Telegraph article, it is believed there are up to 20,000 Brits in Sharm El-Sheikh who may have to be evacuated, as pressure placed on Egypt and Russian authorities following No 10 announcement.

The Telegraph article online reports breaking news.

As reported by US news agency NBC, US experts are worried by the news that ISIS could have planted a bomb on the doomed Russian airliner. This signifies that ISIS potentially has greater  ‘reach’, than previously expected.

Today, I take a look at related articles published by NBC, TASS and Pravda.

Given the escalating crisis, surely it’s time for Syrian interventions to be with the approval of the UNited Nations Security Council?
