Tourists pose for photographs as they wait for the sun to rise atop Mt. Sinai, South Sinai, Egypt on Monday. Visitors climb the 2,285 meter Moses Mountain where Christian tradition says the Prophet Moses received the Tables of the Law containing the Ten Commandments from God. Tourism accounts for 11.3 per cent of Egypt's gross domestic product, and many of the country's 80 million inhabitants rely on the sector for a living.
