With lives and livelihoods destroyed hundreds of people took to the streets of Sharm el-Sheikh on Sunday in a peace demonstration following Saturday’s bomb blasts.

88 people were killed and 200 wounded in the series of explosions that rocked this Egyptian seaside resort.Tourists joined locals in a show of unity against the terrorists. “We are working here, we are living here. We are against what happened here. All of us, all the Egyptians, and all the foreigners staying with us and working with us. Because this is our life and we are against what happened and we hope not to have it anymore”, said one local man. At the car park where one of the bombs exploded prayers were said for the victims, and in front of the hotel reduced to rubble by another bomb, candles were lit for those who died.
