Tourism workers in Luxor, Egypt, are threatening protest over the appointment of the region's new governor. Over the weekend Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi appointed Adel el-Khayat to lead Luxor. El-Khayat is a member of a political party strongly associated with the Islamist group Gamaa Islamiya, a group connected to attacks in Luxor in 1997 that killed 58 tourists. Parliament member Abdul Mawgoud Rageh Dardery represents Luxor. He speaks with Robert Siegel about the appointment and the reaction to it.
