France on Thursday advised its nationals against all non-essential travel to Sharm el-Sheikh following the crash of a Russian passenger jet that took off from the Egyptian resort at the weekend.

The advice from the foreign ministry, updated on its website on Thursday, also concerns the town of Taba. The ministry said only "a few dozen" French citizens are currently in Sharm el-Sheikh.
