Voters, but few tourists, in shadow of Egypt CAIRO: For millennia, the Sphinx guarding Cairo's famed pyramids has gazed upon the rise and fall of civilisations and the passage of countless visitors.   Now though, the ancient statue is looking on an absence of foreign tourists.   They have been chased away, the coterie of local souvenir hawkers and guides in its shadow say, by the political turmoil swirling over the country.   On Saturday, as polling stations nearby received voters for the second round of a referendum on ...
