As investigations into the cause of the suspicious crash of a Russian jet in Egypt last weekend continue, the tragedy is already having a profound impact on the country's tourism industry as well as diplomatic relations.
Britain is also becoming increasingly embroiled in a diplomatic crisis with Russia, which criticized the country's decision to suspend flights to the Sharm el-Sheikh holiday resort and accused it of not sharing intelligence on the crash.
However, on Friday, President Vladimir Putin changed his tune and suspended all Russian flights to Egypt following advice from Russian security services.
Relations with Egypt are also frosty; U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron's decision to halt flights, leaving thousands of tourists stranded, has angered the country.
We take a closer look at the fallout from the disaster.
