Egypt in UK airport row

Egypt has said it will search British personalities going through its airports after Pope Shenouda III, Patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church, was made to go through a metal detector at Heathrow Airport in London. The 84 year old, who was opening a catholic church in the UK, was also told he would undergo a body search, but officials backed down after he objected. A strongly worded statement sent to the UK government said that if high level Egyptian figures are subject to such treatment, it would exert 'tit for tat' on British personalities.
