    Egypt eagerly wants to regain its position as a major tourist destination.

    The country's tourism sector has been crippled by the violence that led to the 18-day revolution, which led to the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, the long time president.

    Tourism accounts for 11 per cent of Egypt's struggling economy, and one in eight jobs depend on it. But as Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Luxor, there are no signs yet of tourists returning.
