Egypt deports 'east European prostitutes'

Police in Egypt say they have deported more than 90 foreigners suspected of involvement in prostitution.

Most of the deportees are believed to be women from eastern Europe.

They were arrested earlier this week in the Sinai resorts of Taba and Sharm el-Sheikh.

Some of those deported were said to have been arrested as they were trying to cross illegally into Israel.
